Early 1800's framed copy of a work attributed to Guido Reni, printed on silk. His name and a Petrus Belletini (apparently the engraver of this copy) appears in the margin of the piece. Artwork measures approximately 7 1/2" wide and 9 3/4" high by sight. Aside from two instances of spotting and a visible loose thread, this piece is in very good condition. Not inspected out of frame. Decorative wooden frame measures approximately 14 1/4" wide, 16 3/8" high and 2" deep. Frame is likewise in very good condition, with some accumulated dust and grime in the nooks and crannies.
