Early 19th Century Bare Knuckle Boxing Sketch in ink

£180.00Price

This ink sketch shows what appears to be the end of a hard fought bare knuckle bout, with the fighter on the left barely held up by seconds as he fails to make it 'up to the scratch line'.

The referee in the background is announcing the other fighter as the winner, and showing sportsman like conduct, he is reaching out to shake the losers hand. 

A charming ink sketch of a thrilling scene from the early 19th Century.
