Currier and Ives hand colored lithograph, circa 1870. The paper size is 17 3/4"x 13 1/2", the inner image is 12" x 8 3/4".
The print depicts a bright array of fruits and flowers, detailed and beautifully colored.
The print comes from a local estate, but appears to have been mounted or framed in the past. There is slight fading in te central area, which shows the outline of the framed area. There is some foxing at the margins and a tear at the bottom which does not encroach upon the image. The are remnants of tape(?) at the very edge of the paper. There is minor writing in pencil at the lower right corner- looks like a price and inventory number.
Once professionally framed, this piece will be gorgeous! It will be mailed packed flat with cardboard backing to prevent damage.
