Abraham Lincoln Emancipation Proclamation Print - Vintage With Original Frame For Sale
This listing is for a vintage print of Abraham Lincoln's image, formed from the words of the famous Emancipation Proclamation, which declared the end of slavery in the U.S. The print is from an original design and engraving by A. Hegebeck in Minneapolis, MN. It comprises the entire text of the Emancipation Proclamation (announced September 22, 1862 and signed January 1, 1863) arranged to form the image of President Lincoln.
The print is oval and measures 14" tall by 11" wide. I believe the frame to be original and of the period. The entire framed "picture" is "18 tall by 15.5" wide. The glass is intact. The frame is in good condition with some age wear and a few scratches here and there. All in all, a very nice presentation. I've never removed the print from the frame. I'll leave it up to the buyer.
This 1881 print is in beautiful condition. I see no rips or tears, no staining. Overall light toning from age. Exceptional condition for this 132 year old print.

I'm a longtime collector of Lincoln memorabilia, and this is one of the nicest pieces I've seen in years.
