Nathaniel Currier (American, 1813-1888) Clipper Ship

Lot 1876436 Details

Description
Nathaniel Currier (American, 1813-1888) Clipper Ship 'Nightingale,' 1854. Hand-colored lithograph after Buttersworth by C. Parsons, titled and dated lower margin. Provenance: William McCormick Blair Collection purchased by William Blair and Company from his estate, Conningham 1159 18" x 24"
Condition
Fair, recommend replacing mat. The sheet is laid down with an unknown adhesive (no dry mount tissue is visible). The lower margin is cut at the bottom of the title lettering, but the margin is present and mounted with the rest of the sheet. It was probably once folded back and later cracked and reattached. In the process the bottom edges of the letters were slightly trimmed and have been "completed" with pen and ink. The sheet is somewhat darkened, and there are several isolated fox-marks. The lower margin is touched with white in a few places. The color and gum arabic are good.

The absence of condition reports in the catalog entry does not indicate that the item is in perfect condition.
