Framed University Of Pennsylvania College Reed & Barton Damascene Etching with a beautiful image of the statue of Benjamin Franklin that sits on the Penn campus in very good condition, the only flaw is a small ding in the bottom of the frame as seen in the picture. Limited edition Damascene was produced by Reed & Barton in silver, 24 karat gold vermeil, burnished cooper and bronze. Reed & Barton was a prominent American silversmith manufacturer based in the city of Taunton, Massachusetts and is now owned by Lenox, although they no longer produce these items. Reed & Barton produced the etchings from the 1940s to the 1970s in limited editions. They are easy to maintain and were finished with a protective seal so that the copper and silver don't need to be treated and don't tarnish. Damascene has a long history dating back centuries and was historically produced in locals that developed expertise in the technique such as Kyoto, Japan or Toldeo, Spain. A beautiful piece.
