|An unusual and early, hand tinted lithograph print titled "Washington Family", by Nathaniel Currier before his partnership with James Ives. From the 2 Spruce St. era (1838-56), this 13" x 8-1/2" small folio print (image size only) comes in a late 19th century mahogany veneer frame. This print is signed "WASHINGTON FAMILY. GEORGE WASHINGTON HIS LADY & TWO GRANDCHILDERN (sic) BY THE NAMES OF CUSTIS." It also states "LITH. & PUB. BY N. CURRIER 2 SPRUCE ST N.Y." This print has hand colouring, including a green tree, George's cuff and Martha's dress, a blue coat and drape on the male grandchild, yellow trim on the chairs, epaulets, table drape and buttonholes, faint yellow on the granddaughter's dress, and small touches of pink on the upholstery. This image is different from some of the later Currier & Ives prints of this subject, and this unusual Ives print is in excellent original condition with no tears, foxing, staining or other damage, with only slight losses to the frame veneer, some yellowing of the paper, and a small white spot on the paper's margin and beside the girl's head where the paper hasn't yellowed. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are secondhand and may have slight signs of gentle use.
