This is a fine etching by the celebrated Victorian artist, George Straton Ferrier.
It dates to around the late 1870s.
It is a small panoramic view looking over fishing boats in the Firth of Forth with the Bass Rock in the distance. It has been drawn with much delicacy and is certainly a very attractive little Scottish seascape etching.
It was probably made by Ferrier for inclusion in the Portfolio publication - which published original artist prints.
It has been signed on the plate, below the image.
It is in fine antique condition and beautifully presented. It has recently been remounted and reframed - ready to be hung straight onto your wall.
Image size: 8.3 x 16.7 cm; Frame 27.5 x 33.5 cm
