Amazing portrait dated from the 1750s depicts champion thoroughbred Othello. Color illustration of the horse sits in the center of this framed artifact, with Othello's history on either side, the top reading, "The Portraiture of Othello, the Property of Sir Ralph Gore Baronet," and small print at the bottom reading, "Published According to act of Parlaiment, May 18, 1751." Image is heavily toned but still quite legible, frame is fragile with some separation at corners, though it's still pretty sharp considering its over 250-year old vintage.  Framed to 16x16".
