County Democracy Balance Tammany Tight Rope 1885 antique color lithograph printBrian DiMambro- Antique & Vintage Maps, Prints, Books & Gold Coins
The Shaky Situation of the Political Blondin
Art by Bernhard Gillam
Issued 1885, Puck
Fine original antique color lithograph print. Printed on quality paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In near VG or better condition, some light age toning as typical and some faint trivial staining, overall the image remains clean, attractive and well worthy of ownership and display [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws]. Text on verso as issued.
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting satirical image. Please note-this is a single sheet only.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
Sheet measures c. 9 3/4" W x 13 1/4" H.
Printed area measures c. 8 1/2" W x 11 3/4" H.
