Original line engraving printed in black on laid paper.
Inscribed lower right in pencil '1st trial state (2 prints). Signed in pencil below the plate and inscribed with title.

An exceptionally rare trial state of which only two impressions were taken. The principal differences from the final edition of 50 are:
1) The chicken at right has not been completed.
2) A round tool which appears in the final state has been omitted at the lower left.
3) The written inscription in the plate below the artist's monogram has not been inserted.
(Image of Final State included for comparison)
Perfect. Full margins. Not laid down. Offered unmounted and unframed.
From the collection of the artist's American friend Alvin Rolfs who he had met during the war. Sold now on behalf of a Sussex family who have owned it since 1993.
The finished plate was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1939 and became his Diploma Work on his election to full membership of the Academy in 1941.
