Beautiful bust view portrait engraving of the "Father of Our Country," President George Washington, in an oval format. Executed from the original painting done by Stuart. Published by John, Fry & Co., New York. 8 x 10 3/4. Minor age toning. The wavy lines you see in the outer background area are not in the original engraving but are caused by the scanning soft wear.
George Washington was revered by citizens of the North and South alike, and portraits like this one hung in the parlors of many homes during the Civil War years.
