American Patriotic Calligraphy w/ Lady Liberty, an Eagle and the American Flag, c. 1876

A small American Patriotic Calligraphy Pen & Ink Drawing of Lady Liberty, riding on an Eagle and holding an American Flag. Liberty is dressed in a classical robe. There is a signature card on the front of the eagle which I believe reads A. E. Piper (but can't be sure because even under magnification, it is hard to make out. The piece measures 4 ¾" x 2 ¾" and is framed in a period lemon gold frame (overall frame size 6 ¾" x 4 ¾").

The drawing is in very fine condition: Lady Liberty and the Eagle are strong; the flag has faded a bit, but the flag pole, with a pointed top, remains well-defined. I have not had it out of the frame to determine if there is anything written on the back. No rips, creases or tears. The dark spots along the side and top margins appears to be tape residue. The frame has several small dings, but it otherwise in very good condition also.
