Customer Question

I have a color print of the Sans Souci gardens 18"X12". Looks to be very old and has Italian, German and maybe Latin verbiage on the top and bottom. Can you tell me if it is worth anything?

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This is a hand-colored engraving printed Georg Balthasar Probst, from the late 18th century. It's in a Vue d'optique format. Here's an interesting article on that format, and Probst:

The value of this one would be around $250-$300 in its current condition. Here's another example from this set:

Please let me know if I can help further.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
