Original & Framed 1865 Currier & Ives Lithograph Titled For Sale

********** ORIGINAL 1865 CURRIER & IVES LITHOGRAPH TITLED "THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN" **********

This Is AnOriginal Currier & Ives Lithograph Depicting The Assassination Of President Abraham Lincoln On That Fateful Good Friday Night Of April 14th, 1865 While President Lincoln & Company Were Watching The Play "Our American Cousin" At Ford's Theatre In Washington, D.C. In The Lithograph Are The Following Characters From Left To Right: Major Henry Rathbone &His Fiancee Clara Harris, Mary Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln, And The Assassin John Wilkes Booth. Rathbone Is Depicted As Spotting Booth Before He Shot President Lincoln And Trying To Stop Him As Booth Fired His Weapon. Rathbone Actually Was Unaware Of Booth's Approach, And Reacted After The Shot Was Fired. While President Lincoln Is Depicted Clutching The American Flag After Being Shot, This Is Not Historically Accurate And It Is Possible That He Simply Had Pushed The Flag Aside To Watch The Performance. At The Bottom Of The Lithograph In Addition To The Last Names Of The Characters Is The Title "THE ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT LINCOLN, AT FORD'S THEATRE WASHINGTON, D.C. APRIL 14TH.. 1865. It Then States Under This: Entered According To Act Of Congress AD.1865 By Currier & Ives, In The Clerk's Office Of The District Court Of The United States, For The Southern District Of N.Y. Published By Currier & Ives, 152 Nassau St. New York.

As With Most Of My Important Lincoln Items, I Had This Lithograph Professionally Frame And Matted. ItIs Matted On A Beige Colored Acid Free Backing And Mounted Behind Non Reflective Glass. The Lithograph Measures 14 x 17". In The Mat It Measures 10 x 13 3/8". The Mat Is A Little Darker Beige Than The Lithograph Itself, Which Brings Out Brutality Of The Scene. The Frame IsDark Brown And Made Of Wood With Very Attractive "Antique" Type Designs On The Inside And Outside Facing. On The Back Of The Frame Is A Metal Wire For Suspension. It Will Arrive Ready For Hanging. With The Frame This Item Measures 18 3/4 x 23". As Hopefully The Photos Will Reveal I Spared No Expense In The Framing Of This Item. It Really Is Outstanding!

The Lithograph Does Have Some Light Foxing Around The Border As Well As A Little In The Lithograph, However, In The Lithograph It Is Not Discernible Except On Very Close Inspection. In Addition To This There Are Two Very Small Round "Pinhead" Size Black Marks On The Upper Right Side Facing. These Two Areas Are In The Border Area Only And Do Not Impede Into The Lithograph Itself.

As With All Of My sales I Have & A Low Start. Please offer With Confidence And Forward Any Questions And They Will Be answered Promptly. Thank You For Looking!

Any Winning International buyer Will Be Contacted At The Close For A Shipping Quote.
