Product information
This sale is for an absolutely stunning Victorian Circa 1863 Calligraphy Lords Prayer.
This was most certainly produced by a young gentleman (young boy) at the time. This is a very rare piece as it depicts a wide variety of different font types and styles all hand drawn and what appears to be a stylised person (possibly a wigged gentleman or even God himself) with angle wings at the top of the piece and a bird (possibly Pheasant at the top and bottom).
This does have a name at the bottom right of the picture which appears to read possibly 'James Menndell (or similar) serup 1863'.
I have seen many embroidery samplers in my years as an Antique dealer but a Calligraphy example is a very rare thing in deed. This piece is under glass and in what appear to be it original frame (showing some signs to the cloth on the corners which is a very simply repair)
The total size is 18" (46cm) by 15" (38cm) so a very good sized piece.
Postage will be fully insure to the UK only.
All our pictures are taken with a Macro zoom lens to allow for very detailed inspection of the ring and we only use natural day light. We DO NOT use LED lighting to enhance the pictures on any of our jewellery (this is a method used in most high street jewellers so be careful and always take stones outside to view in natural lighting conditions). This helps to ensure you are getting the ring as it is advertised and without any fabrications. Other sellers do not do this and try to hide the true facts with less than good photos and inaccurate descriptions. When you buy from R.D.Brown and Son's you truly get a superb deal and excellent customer service.

Please be aware that as the ring will have been altered to your specifications once sized it can no longer be returned. You will not be covered by the consumer contracts legislation. If you are in any doubt I am happy for you to buy the ring and once you are happy that it is the ring for you, you can send it back to be sized. We will then return it to you within 7 to 10 days at the size you specify for free. As you can see we are always open and honest about our service and your rights. Be wary of other sellers who will not tell you this information.
