Brief Description
Chromolithograph of an early-nineteenth century cricket match involving men in fitted jackets, high-collared white shirts, trousers, black top hats and black Oxford shoes. The angle shows a side-on view of the wicket, with the batsman at the right about to hit the ball which has just been bowled underarm by the bowler at the left. There are marquees on either side of the field, in and around which are a number of male and female spectators. A red ensign flag flies from the a teepee on the right. This is a print of an original work by James Pollard published in 1824. A printed inscription below the image reads 'THE CRICKET MATCH. / PUB. SEPTR. 1, 1834, BY DEAN & MUNDAY, THREADNEEDLE STREET'. The print is framed under glass in a cream window mount; black and gold wood frame. Verso framer's label; also a white security (?) label '01656/016S6'.
