    That's a great print. Colors are crisp, and the frame is great. I found this on Reinthal & Newman:
    "Reinthal & Newman (1905-1928)
    New York, NY

    When Albert E. Reinthal arrived in New York in 1896 he formed the publishing company of Reinthal & Gross. After this business disolved he formed a new company to publish lithographic prints and postcards with Stephen L. Newman. Many cards were signed by well known artists such as Harrison Fisher Howard Chandler Christy, Philip Boileau, and Jesse Willcox Smith. Also distributed the cards illustrated by Raphael Kirchner. Their cards were printed by American Colortype, Brett Lithography, Quardi-Color Co., and U.S. Litho. Other cards were printed for them in Europe. After 1920 they mostly reprinted older images."
    From this, you can be sure that the print you have is before 1928, which is when they went out of business. Keep it out of direct light, ad if you're going to keep it, you might have it re-matted with acid-free paper. I took a quick look on ebay, and most of the ones there are faded or washed out. With that frame, in that condition, and depending on where you are selling it,I wold guess it was worth between $250 and $350. It's a super print!

    thank you upstate...I loved reading the history! This has been in my great grandmothers house upstairs in her bedroom for ever....it was out of the light...when she died, my mother took the picture and never unwrapped it....so I believe the wonderful quality of this print is due to dark, cool room and again...wrapped and protected....thank you again...it's not that I want to part with this, as I said, I grew up looking at this marvel....I just wanted to know history and what approximately it was valued....so that I, like my mother and great grandmother, could take care of it accordingly

    I was at the Syracuse show today, and I saw a Dabreak, larger than yours, but the frame was in pretty bad shape, and it was more faded. It was marked $250.00, so yours has to be worth at least that much
