Seller ID 002621
A colorful portrait of a mid-17th century cavalier by the master illustrator, George Cruikshank. N.d., circa 1830. Other than the man holding a long pike in his gloved hand, he might also have stepped out of "The Three Musketeers". The cavalier guard is flamboyantly dressed, with the wide brimmed, floppy cockaded hat of the day and flairing boots with long spurs attached. Measuring 26 by 15 cm, 10.5 by 5.75 inches. On a board, and signed by Cruikshank. The edges of the board are worn.
