About the Item

"House of Conseequa, A Chinese Merchant in the Suburbs of Canton, From a Drawing in the possession of Sir Geo. Staunton, Bart." a hand colored engraving by Samuel Bradshaw (1810-1888) after a drawing by Thomas Allom (1804-1872). It was one of 15 illustrations in "China, in a Series of Views, Displaying the Scenery, Architecture and Social Habits of that Ancient Empire", published in 1843. It depicts the elegant house in Canton, Guangzhou province of a wealthy Chinese merchant Conseequa, who was engaged in business with European and American traders in the early nineteenth century. The first two wisteria plants brought to England in 1816 were obtained from Conseequa. The house is located in a peaceful and beautiful setting on a canal. People on a small boat appear to be making a delivery to a on the front porch of the house. The print is held in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale among others. It is presented in an ornate gold-colored wood frame and a cream-colored mat with a thin black inner trim. There is one small spot above the title, which could be related to the printing process. It is otherwise in excellent condition.
