The thrill of the mounted hunt has been a part of our history for centuries, and this 1600’s era engraving shows handsome men and women preparing for a day of hunting on their beautiful steeds. The men are in their silky finest with plumed hats and tall boots; the ladies are decked out in their finest riding dress sitting side-saddle on their prancing mounts; exceptional details like the look of disapproval on one man looking at the lasses; another man holding a hunting falcon; and the whipper holding the hounds at bay. This is from an antique book plate from the 1890s, is in beautiful condition and ready for framing. Measures 10 ¼ x 7 ¼ inches.
