640 x 490 mm. Toned lithograph (the stallion "Barhut" before a oriental caravan background), blindstamped by the publisher.


Fine lithographed portrait of the Arabian stallion "Barhut", a gift by Muhammad Ali Pasha, Viceroy of Egypt, to the Prussian Consul General v. Wagner, who in turn presented the horse to his King, Fredrick William IV.
