The  Toils  of  1717  –  The  Toils  Plate  of  1729

Johann Elias Ridinger (Ulm 1698 – Augsburg 1767). The Hunting Ground surrounded by Flaring Cords. In front feather cord, set back above

the  row  of  toils

under which the first stag already dies while a royal one still is about to leap over these, but will himself fall prey to the fire of the shooter front right. In the interior of the forest another noble one rather prefers to give the hunters the slip by putting offside. Printing-plate in reverse. (1729.) Inscribed: Ioh. El. Ridinger inv. pinx. sculps. et exc. A. V. / avec privil. de sa Majeste Imp. 12 × 9¼ in (30.5 × 23.4 cm).

raised  stag  of  12  points  held  at  bay  by  hound  of  the  pack

on the reverse side.  Set  of  four  at  obviously  original  rope  of 13 ft 2⅝ in (403 cm) length + 2 × 7⅞ in (20 cm) hooking turn up. Hand-cloth-printing in reddish brown + black on sacking-colored (3) and grey ground resp. 24⅜-24¾ × 13¾-15¾ in (62-63 × 35-40 cm).
