Color Prints by Currier & Ives (2)
A) Miss Woodford, with James McLaughlin up standing to left. The mare was a champion in each of her five years in the sport. The matted print dated 1884 measures 13 1/8" X 17." The sheets prepared by the famous printmaker did not fit a standard frame size, and the majority of prints were trimmed, normally to 10 X 14 to fit their frames. This print of a Hall of Fame racehorse is in excellent condition with no tears or repairs, but does have a mat burn completely covered by matting.B) Harry Bassett by J, Cameron, 1871. The Hall ofFamer is nicely framed with thedimensions 21" L X 18" W. The horse is racing to the right with jockey James Rowe aboard. Rowe later became one of America's most famous personalities. He was the U.S. champion jockey from 1871-1873 and became a trainer after weight became a problem. Rowe's accomplishments as a trainer will be difficult to exceed. He developed 34 champions and ten Hall of Fame racehorses. The fram and print are also in excellent condition.
