I picked these up in a very old building that had been turned into an vintage houseware store. The lithograph (composer) on the right is of Franz Liszt and I am not sure who the left is, but I am certain he is a composer also.

Along the sides reads:

Werckmeisters Kunstverlag, Berlin c2
H. Varges del

This pair of lithographs appeared to be sold in Marshall Fields and Company (per the label on the back)

I found this which is dated to 1920:

    Thanks BELLIN68 :) Are you familiar with M F & C history? Or just history in general.... :)

    Well, how cool is that?!

    No worries...I knew what you meant :)...I did research but couldn't find any refernce to the time frame of when they sold lithographs. My guess is that these are possibly from the late 1800's or early 1900's...but I don't know. All I do know is that I don't want to move them or touch them because the paper on the back is soooo fragile.

    I think the other one is der Unterschrift von 'Robert Schumann'.

    Wow, thanks you two! Yes, it is him. I have learned that instead of spending hours and hours researching (learned a lot though) that I really just need to post here...You guys are great.
