Antique METTOWEE VALLEY GRANVILLE NEW YORK Birds Eye View JH Bufford LITHOGRAPH:
ORIGINAL 'THE METTOWEE VALLY FROM SLATE HILL, GRANVILLE, NEW YORK' LARGE FOLIO LITHOGRAPH BY JH BUFFORD
This is a great piece. It is one of two incredibly rare 19th Century Birds Eye View lithographs I am offering this week. Both based in New York, one is an incredible view of New York City around 1860 and the other is this very scarce view of rural New York along the Vermont border. This one seems to be particularly scarce in fact I can only find a couple of institutional holdings and no historical records of it having sold. It is a very large print with the image measuring 21 3/4 x 37 1/2 on sheet measuring 27 x 41 3/4 inches. It has very good margins. There are small edge tears along the top and left margins. Along the right margin, there is one small tear that extends 1 inch into the image that has been repaired. Along the bottom edge there are some chips and a couple of fixed tears. One of them extends about 1 inch into the image from the bottom edge up through the second E in "Mettowee". Other than that some minor toning and that is about it. I imagine it was cleaned and de acidified when it was repaired. There is a Kennedy Galleries label to the back of the frame who probably did all the work. The print has been hinged into an archival backing and matte. It was archival framed back a while ago, again, probably by the Kennedy Galleries and then was in the collection of the Bank of New York/ Mellon Bank collection where I then acquired it. A very nice frame makes a great presentation of this piece. The frame measures 35 x 49 inches. As you can imagine, this will be a difficult item to ship safely but can definitely be done. If you are interested in having the print shipped without the frame it will be easier and I would be happy to do it and would include the labels as well. If pickup is something you are interested in, let me know and we can work something out. I also will be at Brimfield so if you want to meet there, that would be no problem as well. Just email if you are interested in working one of these things out.
