1397 So Tired – Stamped Mount
Print: Baxter CL 271 “So Tired!" - The print is said to be a portrait of the then Princess Royal, Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter.
On the engraved plate is "Designed by Winterhalter, and Engraved, Printed, and Published by G. Baxter, Patentee, 11 & 12, Northampton Sq., April 5th, 1853 (Entered at Stationers' Hall)."
As Winterhalter painted many portraits of the Royal family this adds weight to the fact that it is of the Princess who was born in November, 1840.
The print was produced from eight blocks, some of them wood, and was originally sold at 1s. 6d.
One of my favourite prints and in fact the first one I ever purchased
