19TH CENTURY ANTIQUE CURRIER & IVES THE LIFE & AGE OF MAN COLORED LITHOGRAPH
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
We're delighted to offer for sale this wonderful antique 19th century Currier & Ives The Life & Age Of Man lithograph. Currier & Ives began their partnership in 1857 and the firm continued to produce wonderful lithographs into the early 20th century. We can date this print from between 1857 -1872 based on the address at 152 Nassau st. Our local museum has an older production run that's noticeably different from the one before you. The art work is relatively the same with different color palettes and slight variations in the text & animals. The later runs are much more religious and state "Fear God, and Keep His Commandments" where the one we're offering simply states "The Life & Age Of Man". These were printed in black & white and hand colored by artistic women, often German immigrants. This is a truly fun & whimsical piece in great condition with minimal foxing and no tears. This lithograph is framed under glass in a mahogany frame with a few small veneer chips as pictured but nothing major.
