Original antique print
Copper etching by Martin Engelbrecht (1684 - 1756). With a rhyming poem about the subject matter in the German language. Original hand coloring. Augsburg, ca. 1730.
Since there is no canary bird far and wide the engraving and the poem refrs to the charming lady sitting in the middle ground playing the flute.
Print has narrow margins and shows traces of age and use. mostly in margins, but also in upper right image
