Description

An impressive large format copper engraved print of The Custom House in the City of London from Strype’s edition of John Stow’s Survey of London. Engraved by William Henry Toms C.1756 during the reign of George II.
Designed by the architect Thomas Ripley “Master-Carpenter” to the board of Customs.
This building replaced Sir Christopher Wren's Custom House that burnt down in 1715. It was made larger which necessitated the acquisition of ground to the north, fronting onto Thames Street.
The view is from the south side of the Thames looking across towards Custom House.
An interesting landscape format composition with a variety of sailing craft moored at the dock with smaller boats and figures busy about their work on the river.
The bank crowded with traders and merchandise waiting for inspection.
A fine and sharp impression with defined plate mark on a laid paper.
In a very good and clean state with bright and vibrant hand colouring, within a handsome period black and gilt beaded frame with deep gilt slip.
Frame size approx: 11 1/2 ins. by 16 ins. (29 cm. by 41 cm.)
