Description: c.1880 Waterlow essay for a 'QUEENSLAND/TWO PENCE' issue imperforate plate proofs in greenish black, slate-violet or carmine-lake on unwatermarked paper, all closely trimmed but with complete outer framelines. Rare. [The Robson Lowe Encyclopaedia states "Little is known about these essays". Given the amateurishness of the ugly First Sidefaces, we expect the design was prepared in an unsuccessful bid to encourage Queensland to lift its game]

Listed in: proofs , essays , QUEENSLAND , AUSTRALIA , AUSTRALIAN COLONIES General
