Dating to the Early Empire Period, this rare Antique Framed Hand-Colored Engraving makes a perfect classical touch for your décor!  The title lossely translates as "Gifts to the Poor", glorifying charity and generosity during a period in which the poor in Europe were particularly destitute.  Note the cat and dog in the engraving ~ also symbolizing the less fortunate depending on the kindness of those more fortunate.
Circa 1800-1810.
Measures 18 x 25.
