18602. Very Good. Item #900005
Absolutely beautiful and possibly unique c.1860s color lithograph portrait of George Washington.
Undated with no publication information we are estimating the date of this piece based on the presence of three Civil War era newspapers used as backing between the print and the wooden back of the frame. A printed facsimile of Washington's signature appears below the image in the margin.
We have exhaustively searched for comparables of this image and have been unsuccessful. Edges of the print are tanned with a small closed tear along the left edge. The gorgeous contemporary frame is handsomely rustic.
This historic piece measures 20" X 17" framed and would make the perfect centerpiece to any fine Washington collection.
