Here are two wonderful hand colored stone lithographs published by Currier & Ives titled "The American Fireman, Facing the Enemy & Always Ready." The artwork for these two of a series of four fireman lithographs have been credited to German-born American artist Louis Maurer (1832-1932) and each of these are dated 1858. An interesting note: Both Currier & Ives were certainly well known printmakers, but they were also both members of their local fire departments! These lithographs are in excellent overall condition, with minimal toning, minor border spots and imperfections, and light expected wear from age and use. Matted under glass in matching wooden molded frames, with some minor frame rubs and losses. They not been examined out of frame.Dimensions: 21” h x 16 ½” w, sight; 27” h x 21 ½” w, framed.
