The lot contained eight prints, three of which were lithographs by Shannon. The whole was sold for £650.
The lithographs by Shannon are not identified by the cataloguer. The image shows that they are 'The Ebb Tide' (1917), 'The Cup of Tea' (1907), and the fan-shaped lithograph 'The Promontory' (1907/8).

A detail of 'The Cup of Tea' (this is one of ten copies printed in green) shows the intimacy of the scene. It's hard to tell if the copy in the auction was also printed in green - I think this is one of the twenty copies in black.
