19thC Engineering Antique Print. Growing Rice in China. Chinese farmers with long queues of hair, wearing hats, baskets on bamboo across shoulders, with early irrigation technology. (Would look wonderful, paired with next rice-framing engraving.)

Original steel engraving by T.A. Prior after Thomas Allom (1804-1872). Published in London between 1843 and 1847 (with later fine hand-colour) for China & the Chinese Illustrated. A series of views, from original sketches, displaying the scenery, architecture, social habits, etc., of this ancient and exclusive empire. by Thomas Allom Esquire, revealing to the West the unusual landscapes, elaborate social customs, unfamiliar religious customs and beliefs, strange occupations and pastimes, and fascinating religious inventions, in China at the time of the declaration of peace at Nanking in 1842, at the end of the first Opium Wars between Britain and China.

This would look lovely with the following, early Chinese Rice Growing and early Chinese engineering.
