Value of etching the Stag at Bay

Resolved Question:

Seeking value appraisal for an original etching of "the Stag at Bay" done by Thomas Landseer. 42" wide by 25 1/2" tall (excluding frame). Etching was made for the Marquis of Breadalbane in 1865. never been on public display. It is a special type of etching known as "rock engraving" on ld Style Holland paper which was discontinued some 95 to 105 years ago. Under the pciture is written "To the most noble the Marquis of Breadalbane this engraving from the original picture in is Lordship's collection is with permission most respoectively dedicated by His Lordship's obedient servants." note original painting on which this etching is based was painted by the artists father Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.

I do find many Thomas Landseer etchings, engravings, and lithographs on the high end fine art market. His work is known but as you well know this sounds like a bit more unique piece than many. Bonhams has dealt with the most that I have found and while this one maybe subtly different, I do believe they would be the best place to get a formal appraisal. They are located internationally so they also are quite accessible. Here is one of his stags that came up in 2003. It is also an engraving and not an etching so it is apples and oranges but here are a few that they have seen.

 

Lot No: 143

engraving, published 1865 by Lewis Brail,
(plate) 60.3 x 99.5cm
Estimate: £700 - 900

 

Closer to yours - This one is a stag although the title is deceptive

I hope this is helpful. Again I would contact Bonhams or Michells for a fuller appraisal. Bonhams has many locations at the following link. Please find the closest office to phone and connect to their specialist for a fine Landseer print. This is the best way to narrow the value. http://www.bonhams.com/eur/menuLocations/
