Eagle Attack by Robert Taylor features Luftwaffe Messerschmitt Me109s during the Battle of Britain.

Condition - this print has previously been framed and there is a strip of tape along the top edge of the back of the print, it has caused a noticeable ridge in the top 18-20 mm of the white border (the border is 50 mm in total) which is visible from the front of the print. There are a few other very minor handling blemishes in the border areas. Fortunately the print was not on display for very long and there is no evidence of fading - the image area is in perfect condition and the faults would be concealed by framing. This would be ideal for someone wanting a modestly priced example of this magnificent print for framing and display.
It comes with the original Certificate of Authenticity. Normal price for a perfect example of this print would be around £500.
The print is covered by our 'No Quibble Guarantee' so if its not as you expected you can return it for a full refund.
