This vivid, humorous English sporting print is an original chromolithograph of 'Breakfast at the Three Pigeons' by Cecil Charles Windsor Aldin, R.B.A. (1870-1935). It's from his first set of hunting prints, entitled "The Fallowfield Hunt," which he began to publish in 1899. The set instantly became popular in both the U.K. and the U.S. and has remained so for over a century.

This scene shows the fox hunters breakfasting at the Three Pigeons Pub in Fallowfield, a suburb of Manchester, England. Their hounds are baying at the open door of the beamed ceiling dining room, no doubt anxious to get a taste of the side of ham on the long trestle table. The artwork is inscribed lower right in the matrix 'Cecil Aldin 1900,' his hand lettered signature a lovely example of an Arts and Crafts era font. Photograph #10 pictures Cecil Aldin with one of his beloved dogs.

The print is 15 inches by 24 inches ( 21 inches by 30 inches overall), surrounded by a 3 inch' wide, grooved oak frame painted flat black. There is a half round gilt fillet and the covering glass is somewhat wavy. A hanging wire is installed on the back and it appears the intact paper dust cover is original. The frame, which we believe is original to the print, is in very good condition, with some scattered rubs to the paint and slight separation at the corners. A portion of one edge about 4 inches long on the left side was brushed with gold paint (see photograph # 7); this could be covered with flat black paint---we leave that to the buyer's choice. The print itself is in excellent condition, no stains or tears, the colors fresh and perhaps even more vibrant than we were able to capture in our photographs. It's a handsome, elegant way to bring rural England to your home.

Note: This print complete with glass and frame weighs 7 pounds, 6 ounces
