Original etching in sanguine ink on cream color wove paper by Paul Cesar Helleu. Lifetime impression. Signed in pencil by the artist lower left. General dating for this piece is ca. 1900 (no catalogue raisonne exists for Helleu, so dating for mostĀ of his pieces is approximate). Edition size is unknown, but most of his editions are small. The sheet was inspected apart from the frame and found to be in excellent condition, with some toning from prior matting.
