|Description: We offer a hand colored lithograph by Thomas Kelly. The composition is 18” x 25” on ivory paper that measures 20 7/8” x 28”, signed in the print “Tholey” and titled under the image “American Prize Fruit with Vase.” The piece was published by Thomas Kelly, 276 3rd Avenue, New York, likely in the third quarter of the 19th century. A Dutch inspired flower arrangement is surrounded by a bounty of orchard fruit rendered in deep jewel tones with a forthright, maximalist, nay American, sensibility. Item #PR00287.
Condition: The print shows some toning and minor discoloration, most noticeably on verso. It is not laid down, retains 1"plus margins and still vibrant colors. Very good condition.
