Print of the Day: The Little Royal Party in their Goat Chaise; etc.

Prints of the Royal Family
England, 1850s

The Royal Collection
This and all related images courtesy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Here we see a series of prints published by Dean & C0 of Threadneedle Street. The four hand-colored (with watercolor) prints depict the Royal Family in Windsor Park, The Royal Family in Scotland, The Royal Party in the Home Park and The Little Royal Family in their Goat Chaise. Such images of Queen Victoria, the Prince Consort and the Royal Children would have been happily purchased by the public. This set dates to the early 1850s.
