University of California Berkeley Framed Etching - Sather Gate, in good condition. 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 etchings. The art is framed and measures 14 1/2 inches x 12 1/2 inches.
Aside from a few very minor nicks, the item is in quite good condition and displays well with a surprising amount of detail in the artwork. 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.
