An original copper line engraving of Thorney Abbey in Cambridgeshire. Published in 1784 by Alexander Hogg in the New British Traveller. It was engraved by Ambrose Warren.

This antique framed print shows a view towards the south-west side of the Benedictine abbey church. The west front was highly carved with figures of saints in the niches and beasts above the Romanesque doorway. The nave survived the reformation and was restored in 1638 as the church of St Mary and St Botolph and the aisles were demolished.

This print is mounted in an ivory conservation quality mount, surrounded by a new light walnut and gold wooden frame with acrylic glazing. The print itself is in a good condition and has been lightly cleaned to remove some of the long-term effects of foxing, light and water damage and to help conserve it for the future. Price – £35.00.

Approximate dimensions are:

Mount window: 180 x 135 mm

Frame overall size: 280 x 235 mm
