    More Information: Pair of Early 19th Century Steel Engraved Portraits of Women. From Fisher's Drawing Room Scrap-Book, London & Paris: Fisher, Son, & Company, 1836. This lot features a pair of beautiful steel engraved portraits, one measuring 11 inches x 8.5 inches (landscape format) and the other 8.5 inches x 11 inches (portrait format).  These portraits are marvels of the engraver's art and include a portrait of Maria Therese and Caroline Norton. Also included are the title pages and other preliminary pages of the original volumes from which these plates were extracted. Sadly, Caroline's portrait displays some moderate scattered foxing, otherwise they are in very good condition. Includes several preliminary pages from the books these prints were extracted from. Once framed and matted these beautiful engravings would be a welcome addition to the décor of any home, office, or business.
