Antique Kellogg Hand Colored Lithograph Boy and Dog - The Tired Soldier

Antique charming and folky hand colored litho by Kellogg and Comstock of New York and Hartford, CT, rivals of Currier and Ives. It depicts a little sleeping boy dressed in a soldiers uniform complete with a small sword being watched over by his large faithful guardian dog. The dog looks like a Newfoundland or St. Bernard dog. They are in a landscape setting. It is titled below the image : "THE TIRED SOLDIER" and numbered "149". Below the image in fine print on the left is printed: "Kellogg & Comstock 150 Fulton St New York & 136 Main St. Hartford Conn." Below the image in fine print on the right is printed: "Ensign & Thayer 12 Exchange St. Buffalo". It is in an antique stepped deep wooden frame with glass. I think the wood is walnut but am not sure. C.1850. Free shipping within the USA includes insurance, tracking and signature required delivery confirmation.

Outer frame measurements: 13 3/4" x 17 1/2".
Depth of frame - 2 1/8".
Opening in front of frame or sight - 9 3/4" x 13 1/2".
Opening in back of frame - 10" x 14".
Image not including margins or title - 8" x 12 1/8".

Condition: There is some age discoloration and there are some light creases. There is one more noticeable crease in the left margin that goes just into the image about half way down. There is some wear to the black outline around the image. The frame looks like it has been refinished some time ago and has some wear to the finish but probably is the original frame. There is some separation on the corners of the frame. It has a replaced cardboard in the back and the glass is newer. Guaranteed to be old and as described.
