It is unusual to have both the black and white and color version of this 19th century lithograph. These are of the period. The full sheet on the hand colored panel measures 12 1/2″ x 19″ with large margins. The left margin is slightly smaller than the right. The  image is 10″ x 14 3/4″.  The black and white panel  is 13 1/4″ x 19 1/4″ for the full sheet. The  image measures 10″ x 14 1/4″. They are on heavy paper and in good condition.  There is some toning in the top margin especially of the color panel but the images themselves are in remarkably clean condition considering their age.
