This is a classic image by the American lithographers Currier and Ives, circa the 1890s, titled "POPE PIUS IX". This print was very popular in the 19th century and remains so today. This example is an original lithograph with hand coloring and is not a later reprint. It is authentically old with light signs of age. Such flaws are typical of authentic old Currier and Ives prints. The backing is wood and the frame of the period. Measurements of the sheet 15 1/2" by 11 1/2" framed.
