Fine Art/engraving by Richard Ansdell

Question
I have a very, very old engraving by Richard Ansdell named "Death of the Stag."  It is engraved by someone named H. T. Ryall, Engraver to Her Royal Majesty.  Can you tell me anything about this engraving?  It is very large, and I would like to know if it has any value to it at all.  Thank you so much for your time.

Answer
I have just enough info on this artist to tell me that I need to do digging to find details and values etc.

There are quite a few old engravings/etchings out there that are over 100 years old but low in value. On occassion, depending on the artist, I do see some that are much more valuable.

We would have to work together to find answers.

If you want to persue it, use my email address to send questions.

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.
