Antiques Road show Episode- Unseen Nelson Print

I wonder if any of you saw the recent Antiques Road show Episode which featured an etching of Admiral Lord Nelson by Henry Edridge (1768-1821). The etching had apparently hung unseen in a school common room for many years and is reputed to be worth around £100,000.

Its condition was amazing, except for a slight yellowed cast but the impact of a young Nelson’s frank gaze remains strong.
