Abraham Lincoln Portrait, Illinois Watch Company 1914

Abraham Lincoln Portrait, Illinois Watch Company 1914

This Abraham Lincoln portrait was produced by the Illinois Watch Company of Springfield, Illinois. It advertises the company's Lincoln watch.

This is a scarce item!

There is a signature in the upper right front corner that is difficult to read but is probably "R. Bohume". The only other of these portraits I have seen had that signature on the back.

I believe this is a chromo-lithograph on canvas painted over with oil paint to simulate an oil painting. It is framed in a lovely walnut frame.

In a circle in the lower right hand corner it says: "Illinois Watch Company, The Lincoln Watch".

CONDITION: Glaze crackle, stretcher marks, a few very small chips in the paint. On Lincoln's forehead a spot of missing color (see photo) smaller than an M & M. It would probably benefit from cleaning.

DATE: c. 1914

MEASUREMENTS: about 11 1/4 x 8 1/2 overall.
