One of an identically framed pair of Currier trotter horse prints in my shop, this example, "The Grand Horse ST. JULIEN, the 'King of Trotters'." (measuring 11 1/2" by 14 1/2" inside the mat, and 19" by 23" framed), is in very good condition. The print is after a painting by the noted American artist Scott Leighton. I have not examined it out of the frame but for the most part, the kinds of problems that most Currier and Ives print acquire over time are not present. There is light browning of the paper, and a slight horizontal crease at right in the green area, and a small old water drip at top center, none of which seriously impacts the print. The overall impression is of a clean print in good condition. Framing is simple and not all that flattering, but it does the job and would not have to be replaced if you didn't want to spend more money. Considering acquiring both this print and the other one in my shop, as I think they would be attractive displayed together. **ALLOW FOR REFLECTIONS OF A RAILING IN SOME IMAGES**.
