Here is a circa 1845 lithograph in original frame and glass. The lithograph was printed by S. Baillie. S. Baillie began in the late 1830s as a picture framer in New York City. He later worked as a colorist for Currier, before setting up his own business around 1844. He produced a variety of lithographs similar to the small folio images published by Currier & Ives through the mid 1850's This lithograph is a subdued colored print of Noah's Ark and the animals boarding 2 x 2.. The lithograph with frame is 16.5 x 12.5. Sight view is 13.5" x 9.5". The print has little imperfections overall but nothing major that I can see. The frame is original with alligatored finish. It may be painted under the varnish. it is held together by old irregular headed nails. Glass has some little air bubbles and looks original. It either never had a wood backer or lost it. Now has a ancient thick piece of cardboard. There are remnants of brittle black paper from the dust cover. The print has primitive appeal
