1955 Currier and Ives Lithograph - "The Lightning Express Trains"
Vintage Americana From 1955
Taken from the 1955 Publication "A Currier and Ives ~Treasury" this vintage art print was one of the collection of Lithographs included in a large Coffee Table Style book. The 65 year old paper is in very good condition as they were protected from light exposure for many years.
The antique prints are early copies of iconic Currier and Ives works from the 1800's. Collections of 4 works were assembled in themes such as Farm, Rivers and life in early America. Many are seasonal and are wonderful for changing the look of a space to suit the current season. This print will arrive in a 16 x 20 inch beveled edge acid free Mat ready for the framing your choice.
The evolution of steam and the laying of tracks across the nation were a time of great progress for this young country. The sights of these early days were preserved by the artist of Currier and Ives as they created the visions of the mighty trains that rode the rails early on. This lithograph shows us 2 of the Iconic Lightning Express Trains as they roar along the tracks with smoke blowing and embers flying.
Only 1 copy of this 1955 Currier and Ives lithograph available for purchase.
