Large lithograph or chromolithograph poster based on the painting of Washington and Family by Edward Savage. This is truly a rare piece. Such so that I cannot find any information about it. There are registration marks on this so no doubt this a pre public release copy. It is similar to the Currier and Ives version but without the servant standing in the corner. (which might actually date this) Less details in the faces as well. Although the ships on the Potomac behind the family are very detailed. The map on the table that Martha is pointing her fan at is printed with the words "Plan of Projected Capitol Washing". There are no names or markings on this and if you have any information about this print, please do email me. It is large size at 40 x 28. It is shrinkwrapped to foam board but does not appear to be laid down. I did not unwrap so I cannot say for certain. There a couple of condition issues. 2 tears that extend into the image, top center through the drapes by 2.75 inches approximately. Lower right corner by about .75 inches. There is some loss along the edges. The corners are dinged with loss. Would be an excellent candidate for conservation. This will ship flat.
