Wonderful Currier & Ives “Celebrated Winning Horses And Jockeys Of The American Turf”
The superb, extremely rare print by noted Currier & Ives artist, Charles L. Zellinsky, is signed 1888-1889 in stone and was published by the firm in 1889. This large lithograph, image 34.2 X 20.4,” is contained in an amazingly beautiful 41 1/4 X 28 1/2” birds-eye maple frame with wide margins and all writing unusually intact. Fourteen famous thoroughbreds of the era are shown with jockeys aboard, and each combination is keyed in the description. Currier & Ives advertised the print in the April 4, 1890 edition of racing’s leading weekly, Turf, Field & Farm, where it was stated the picture is immense and ought to have a prominent place in the parlors of every horseman.
