This is an Italian copper engraving after a design by Tommaso Piroli, ca. 1752-1824. This print is labeled Plate 3 [Tav. 3] and is presumed to be from "Le antichita di Ercolano, Tome IV" but this is not certain and it may instead be from the artist's mural series of Roman ruins. In any case a most charming engraving in desirable condition. Presumed circa 1792 as the 6 volumes of Ercolano were published between 1789 and 1807. Possibly inspired by copper etchings from "Raccolta di Pitture d'Ercolano", a collection of prints which was published between the years 1752 - 1762. The prints of both editions were made from frescos and artifacts excavated in Herculaneum. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.25 x 7.75 inches. Size as matted is 12.5 x 14. Over all very clean save for very light toning/soiling, almost imperceptible.
