Antique of the week: A hand colored 1852 Litho

It always amazes me when people own a historic house, spend thousands on restoration yet have posters on their walls. It doesn't have to be that way and we are proud to offer the old house restorer a wide selection of antique Lithographs, Engravings and photogravures from 1820-1900.

This week we offer a fine antique hand colored lithograph published by Day & Sons, lithographers to the Queen, published May 1852.  The depiction is of 'The quadrant, Regent Street, by E Walker . This print is original and never framed. When was the last time you found a 159 year old print that had never been framed? No sunfading as this print has been properly stored. This would look magnificent framed in a wide  hand lined and colored french mat with gilt frame and would be the focal point for your Parlor.

More details on this and other offerings can be found on our Website:

The lithograph is a view of the Quadrant, Regent Street in London looking West from Piccadilly Circus. The Street was named after the Prince Regent (later King George IV) and was one of the first planned developments in London. Its layout was based on the plans of the architect John Nash to connect Regents Park to Charing Cross and was constructed between 1814- 1825. The Quadrant was a section of buildings that formed a quarter circle between Oxford Street and Piccadilly. It was purely devoted to commercial use including fashionable shops with a covered walkway and balconies over the colonnades.

This 1852 English, hand colored Lithograph is offered at 125.00 and shipping can be arranged for 15.00. If you have any questions , please contact us at We accept Paypal for your convenience.
