New York. Currier & Ives. Circa late 1800s.
Lithograph with original handcolor, 8 x 13 inches on sheet 13 1/2 x 17 3/4 inches. 3 1/2 inch repaired tear to left edge, entering image area; repair seems to have been long enough ago for tape to cause discoloration to margin. Light soiling, scattered spotting, a few soft creases, two creased corners well outside the image: the image is bright and would display well. A whimsical depiction of kittens engaged in a humanlike activity: the 19th-century precursor to Cats of Instagram. Unusual with its full margins. A great gift for the domino-playing cat lover!
