THE KINGS HEAD, MALMESBURY, and THE KINGS HEAD, CHIGWELL Stock code: 2752
Two pictures from Aldin’s ‘Old Inns’, published in 1921 by Heinemann. These prints, two of the sixteen colour images from the book, were issued by Eyre and Spottiswoode with the Fine Art Trade Guild, whose stamp appears to the lower left edge of each print. Both are SIGNED in pencil by the artist and mounted, framed and glazed. Each lively image features a scene outside a pub and both depict hens pecking around a wicker basket in the foreground and various animals behind; a cat in a window, a dog jumping up at its owner and horses drawing carts along the road. Print size is 30 x 40cm. A very appealing pair.
