Black and white clam shell vignette and page spacer. The clam shell appears to sit on a serving platter with flourishes and other decorations on the platter finishing off the festive look of this vintage border image.
When Alfred H. Engelbach’s book was published in 1878, Engelbach did not identify an illustrator. Many of the images were probably purchased from a print foundry to be used with The King’s Warrant A Story of Old and New France.
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
