"The Hard Bargain."

This is an original 1880 chromolithograph of three men arguing over the details of what appears to be some sort of legal document, from the engraving by Flachenekker, Munich, (possibly Ferdinand Wolfgang Flachenecker, 1792-1847?) Note the details of the costumes and the furnishings of this 18th (?) century room.
