Found in Freeport, Maine, this is a PAIR of circa 1870 American drawings, (possibly a bit earlier), the first of General George Washington on a prancing horse, the second of a cut glass compote overflowing with fruit. Each measures 11 3/4" by 8 3/4" inside the mats, 16" by 12" overall, one of the mats deep maroon, the other, black. They are unframed, taped on the reverse to the mats at the edges. Considering the advanced age and lack of protective framing, they are in respectable condition, though, I note old moisture stains, creases, edge tears, and other tears, extending into the image area. Though these might be considered serious on other works on paper, I feel that on folky drawings like this, they are more than acceptable.
