You're bidding on a beautiful antique Currier & Ives Print - "Evening Prayer" - framed under glass in nice period framing. The print, lightly hand-colored, depicts a little girl with period curlicue hair, hands clasped in prayer. Beneath is the classic bedtime children's prayer - "Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my should to keep; If I die before I wake, I pray the lord my soul to take". The address in the publishing mark dates the print anywhere from the 1830s up to 1894 - My best guesstimate is probably 1860s-1870s.
Beautifully still framed under old handblown glass pane in probably the original framing - a nice criss-cross design. Print is roughly 11" X 15, total size in frame is 15" X 19". Frame does have some minor bumping & scuff, but still basically ready to frame. A teeny bit of foxing in lower-right corner, but print is quite clean overall for age and type.
Please review photos carefully to make your own determination of condition and appeal, and don't hesitate to ask any questions prior to bidding - thanks for looking!
