Welsh costume group prints

There are several similar prints of groups of people, mostly women, in Welsh costume. They are ascribed to different artists and engravers,  but they are in the style of J C Rowland popular print which was first published in 1848. There are various editions of these prints and the hand colouring can vary considerably.
