Photo 4 Reads: The Knapp Co. Lith., N.Y.
15 5/8 x 29 3/4 (Inches) framed
- Joseph F. Knapp of Sarony, Major, and Knapp Lithographer - New York passed away in 1891. I'm assuming Joseph P. Knapp was his son, as this was the family business. I'd love to learn more about this piece, I've never come across it anywhere else, and assume it's pretty scarce. I assume this is a little late to be a Chromolithograph, also considering it has the "Lith" in the bottom right. I'm unsure if this would have been framed for presentation originally or was done a little later.
- My Grandfather was a bottle digger and collector for decades in the Chicagoland area. This hung in his bedroom for 40 years, a gift from my mother in the mid 70's. It's now probably my favorite item among many collections. I'd love to learn more about it. I'm unsure of it's relative value but would be interested in learning more for insurance purposes as a cherished family heirloom.
