Object Description  
Classification:   Prints  
Physical Description:   pair of 'glass pictures' of George III and Queen Charlotte comtemporary. Prints were pasted on glass and the paper rubbed away sufficient enough to permit light to show through and give the effect of soft color. This 'trick' was popular in the XVIII c. when true color prints were not in vogue.
