An interesting color printed engraving of George Washington published in London in 1798 by Robert Cribb, Holborn, engraved by William Nutter after a painting by Gilbert Stuart purported to belong to J.S. DeFranca of Devonshire Place. Devonshire Place is a part of London, but a quick search did not turn up a J.S. DeFranca and it is possible that this print is a copy of another print of Washington, based on the Lansdowne portrait by Gilbert Stuart. It is printed on laid paper and the fact that it is printed in colors (rather than being hand colored) shows that care was taken with the printing. It is 14 inches by 10 inches and with the frame it is 15 ½ by 11 ½ inches.

Condition; Some toning, the plate marks clear. The frame is silver gilt, probably not as old as the print and has some damage.

A life time, though barely, print of George Washington.
