This is an antique engraving of an image of The Duke of Wellington with Sir Robert Peele which was created by the printer, James Faed (1821 - 1911). Faed was a well-known engraver and he did engraved reproductions of paintings so as to disseminate images to the masses. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
