Antique Hand-Coloured Etching and Aquatint Depicting a Bull

After the original painting by James Barenger (1780-1831).

‘The Famous Lincolnshire Ox, Fed by the Right Honorable Lord Yarborough Brocklebury under the direction of the Honourable, Charles A. Pelham M.P. To whom this plate is dedicated by their most obedient and truly humble servant George Young, Horse Bazaar, London, the present owner.’

‘The Lincolnshire Ox was got by Young Fortune, the Property of Phillip Skipwork esq. Young fortune was got by Young Favoirite and Young Favorite by Comet out of Countess. Comet was sold for 1000 Guineas at Mr. Charles Collings sale & Countess sold at the same time for 420 when nine years old. The Lincolnshire Ox was out of a favorite cow of R. Goultons Esq. Bonby, which was got by Coddlenob and Coddlenob by Patriot.’

‘Live Weight 500 stone, 100 Stone heavier than the Durham Ox. And the Admeasurement as follows. 67 inches to the top of the shoulder, 174 inches from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail, 40 inches across the hips, 44 inches across the back, 41 inches across the shoulders, 135 inches in the girth, 23 inches between the forelegs, 14 inches from the breast to the ground.’

Published in January 1925.

In a later, yet complementary glazed parcel-gilt and ebonised frame.

There is some wear and tear here and there as you would expect from its age but nothing significantly serious to detract from the overall charm of the piece.

Overall measurements: 66cm x 56cm.
