Fine Art/Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.


I have a print titled "A Piper And Pair of Nutcrackers"

In the lower left it says: Painted by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.

in the center under the image, it says: London Published August 1st, 1865 by Henry Graves & Co. the Proprietors, Publishers to the Queen_ 6 Pall Mall

Then on the lower right it says: Engraved by Samuel Cousins R.A.

Under that is an embossed seal with the letters ASG in an oval with the name Henry Graves & Co Publishers around the the outside of the oval

I have no idea where it originally came from.  It has been in our family for a long time.  It is in excellent condition and very well framed.

Is this something we should be insuring and if so, what value should we put on it?

Thank you for your time and consideration in this.

I'd have to research this for you. If it does not have a signature, it might fall in line with old etchings/engravings we see on the market at affordable prices.

I'd have to have more info.  If you want to persue it, use my email address:

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
