Awesome oversized, full-length, colorized studio portrait on Masonite of the Sweet Science's first three-division champion in a classic bare-chested studio pose with white boxing togs, black leggings, and colorful championship sash, with Britain's iconic smokestack motif serving as a backdrop.Stamped, "Copyrighted by J.J. O'Brien, N.Y. 1891." The varnish which was applied to protect it has browned over time, giving it a wonderful sepia look. And while the image exhibits water damage around the borders and some surface dings, it remains a very impressive display piece. Framed 38.25x30".
