William H Toms after Robert West - 18th Century Engraving, Allhallows



A remarkably well kept engraving showing the South East prospect of the Church of Allhallows in London. The original drawing was by Robert West (1710-1770) and engraved by William Henry Toms (1700-1765). The print has been subtly hand coloured and the hues remain true. The plate has an inscription at the bottom giving the history of the church, a dedication and the printer's, artist's and engraver's names. There is a date in the top right corner. The print is presented in a smart cartridge card mount with a thin gilt effect frame. Signed in plate. On wove.


The condition is remarkable for a picture of this age with only a small amount of discolouration. The frame has some scuffs to the gilt.
