      Hi, charmsomeone. :-)

      My initial instinct on seeing the surname on the matting was "Hilton," and indeed there is an artist named "Hedley Hilton," but then I looked at the surname on the back label, and that first character looked more like an "F."

      There was an engraver name named "Hedley Fitton":


      Hedley Fitton was born in 1859 in Manchester, England. During the early part of his life, worked as an editor and illustrator for The Daily Chronicle in his home town of Manchester. He specialized in architectural etchings and gained notoriety for his finely detailed etchings of well known British and European structures. His etchings include street scenes and prominent cathedrals of such cities as London, Florence, Edinburgh, and Paris.

      Fitton worked throughout England, Scotland, France and Italy and is nowadays remembered mainly as an etcher of architectural subjects.


      Your print:


      Casino di Nobili, Siena
      Hedley Fitton
      19th–20th century


      This site dates it to 1912/1913:


      Casino di Nobile, Siena 1912/13
      Original etching.
      Signed in pencil.
      Fuller pp.54-55
      S 491 x 327 mm; P & I 448 x 297 mm

      Original Hedley Fitton etching.

      Excellent signed proof impression.

      The complex architecture of the beautiful Italian city of Siena proved a delight for Hedley Fitton's etching needle in this superbly worked plate. An outstanding example printed with delicate plate tone and exceptional contrast.

      Thank you vetraio50.
    7. keramikos, 12 months ago
      charmsomeone, You're welcome.:-)

      As vetraio50 pointed out, it's actually an etching, not an engraving. My bad. :-)

      Now that the etching and its artist have been identified, could you please mark it as "Mystery Solved?"
