Published by Currier & Ives in 1870, this print, “Wild Duck Shooting/On the Wing,” is a lithograph with hand coloring on paper. It is Conningham 6671. A small folio print, the image size is 8 3/16” x 12 7/16”. Margins are greater than 3/4” except for the 11/16” top. The print has very light toning with very few scattered fox marks. There is also an unobtrusive center crease. The image is sharp, clear and bright. It is framed in a period frame with acid-free backing. Frame is missing some veneer.
My father was a collector of Currier & Ives and this beautiful print is from his estate collection. It would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection.
