Large folio size (19 1/2" by 24" inside the mat, 24 1/2" by 20" as framed) hand colored 19th century original vintage lithograph print (1867), titled at bottom "Horses at the Ford" by the iconic American print makers Currier and Ives. A great piece of Americana, this print is apparently rather scarce. Hand coloring in various shades of green, mostly, makes for a most attractive example. I have had an opportunity to examine this out of the frame. It exhibits normal browning, and there are old water stains on the back which seem to show through on the front only in the margins. I note a 1/2" edge tear at right margin and light water staining generally in the lower right margins, though there is another light margin stain at left. All photos taken through glass so allow for reflections. Old frame shows wear. including other Currier prints.
