1878 – Worn out


“Worn out – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows:  “This poor old Horse is worn out. He is quite deaf, and almost blind. But he has been a faithful servant in his time, and his master will not part with him, but keeps him in this pleasant field, where he has nothing to do but to eat and to muse.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
