Description from user:

Framed, with French matting, a Charles Pinet, pencil signed and numbered with blind stamp etching. It is a version of Cathedrale de Chartres le Deam but is slightly different than the common version. It appears to be the same place in the cathedral, just a slightly different angle and it is partially colored. It is titled differently in the lower right hand corner, but I am unable to make it out entirely. (Deambulatoire de Chartres _es Vezzecre??) The blind stamp is on the lower right, along with pencil marks of XXX/200. I can't make out the top number, it looks like 1P0. It appears that the etching paper is mounted on some type of board. I don't think the frame is original. The etching is in very good condition. I could not find anything to call out. The back has a Marshall Fields & Co. tag. I did several hours of looking myself but only found one example that is the same etching. It was on a French site, and I don't speak French, but with Google translate, I believe it said the etching was in a personal collection. The site was: the 3rd picture down the page.
