We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a RARE ORIGINAL FRAMED VICTORIAN "PET OF THE FAMILY" ANTIQUE LITHOGRAPH PRINT!
Circa 1860's and in the style of CURRIER & IVES, we think because of the hard to find DOLL & TOY motif this exquisite original print would make the PERFECT ACCESSORY to display in a DOLL ROOM, and you will love the wonderful rich VIBRANT COLORS, ready to be showcased in the most ADVANCED COLLECTIONS!
The print itself measures 13 1/4" tall by 9 1/4" wide, and is displayed under old glass in an authentic antique dark wooden frame of the period measuring 16 1/4" by 12 1/4"! The lithograph is in wonderful original condition, with gorgeous colors of red, blue, green and burnt sienna and features a charming little girl holding her SWEET DOLL under one arm, and a book, knitting needles and TOYS consisting of two hoops and a ball under the other arm! The print is titled "PET OF THE FAMILY" and then underneath "OF CHRISTMAS MORNING"; we can only assume the "pet" the print is referring to is the FABULOUS DOLL the little girl in the picture would have received as her Christmas gift! Although we seen no manufacturer markings on the print, it is possible it is hidden under the frame, but in EVERY ASPECT including the colors, the age, the subject matter and manner of the lithograph, and even in the type frame, it mirrors those made in the period by CURRIER & IVES!
Other than some minimal and light water staining to the bottom left corner, the print is in DISPLAY READY condition and ready to hang; we can envision this lithograph having a place of honor displayed in a DOLL ROOM, so our 16" antique French R.D. doll is doing the modeling honors-------we almost couldn't let this one go!
This RARE ORIGINAL FRAMED VICTORIAN "PET OF THE FAMILY" ANTIQUE LITHOGRAPH PRINT WITH DOLL & TOYS MOTIF is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration------an absolutely GORGEOUS antique lithograph picture worthy of display in the most ADVANCED COLLECTIONS!
