A 19th Centruy mezzotint

This mezzotint has come in for reglazing and some repair work to the frame. It illustrates the Generals of Waterloo at their annual gathering in London and was printed in 1845. The frame is a simple reverse profile burr maple veneer. It has seen better days but the customer wanted to keep it so we will be repairing rather than reframing.
