The 10th Hussars in India, Kirkee 1854. pair of lithographs published by Ackermann in 1855

Two lithographs, each image approximately 13 x 9ins not including titles and margins. They are both framed in old Hogarth style black frames with bits of the gilt beading lacking but quite sound. Following an accident here the second lithograph is no longer glazed! We are prepared to sell the pictures separately in which case the first one described is £250 and the one in tropical dress is £150. The back boards have the original retailer’s label of Arthur Ackermann & Son of Regent Street. One lithograph shows two mounted officers, one in dress uniform with pelisse, sabretache and his horse with the elaborate shabraque with regimental devices, the other in undress uniform and with a white protective dust cover over his shako. One officer is replacing his sword and the other is chatting to a senior unmounted officer who wears a rock coat and pill box cap. He is balanced by a sergeant on the left. The second image is subtitled “In front of the Main Guard” and shows an officer wearing tropical dress with other soldiers in the background near tyhe regiment’s horses. Kirkee was a station near Poona and two battles took place there in about 1817. An attractive pair of pictures. We are reluctant to send these abroad in their frames because of the problem with glass but would send them with the original back boards with the Ackermann labels if required. Price £350 the pair.
