Here is a nice set of Ulysses S Grant Death Memorial Piece from 1885 for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself?
Beautiful pieces from a book or magazine showing floral arrangements that were made up by various parties for Ulysses S Grant's funeral. The flower arrangements, poems, and sayings captured are quite well done. This is a double sided piece that has two pieces of glass. G W Foster of New York is the engraver of one of the pieces.
The images are done in black and white. You can see the fold in the pages on both sides. Minor spotting in places which just adds to the patina of the piece. We see no tears or repairs to the lithograph paper.
The images are done on old paper, does not appear to be a vintage reproduction. Certainly not a dot matrix piece. We do ask that you be the judge as to the age of this piece before acquiring it.
Older gold and black colored wood frame here. Separation at the frame joints. Old glass over the pieces on both sides, no cracking or blistering.
The Antique Ulysses S Grant Death Memorial Images in frame is 17-7/8" tall, by 20-7/8" across, by 1" wide. The Memorial Pieces showing thru the frame is 10-5/8" tall, by 13-3/8" across.
