Hello friends! Here are some cheery floral Currier and Ives * prints I picked up when I was out and about thrifting with my friend S.B. These prints are in really great shape for as old as they are. They're not original but prints of lithographic prints and I'm thinking they might be from the 50s or 60s. In any case I'm a fan of how colorful they are and that they are part of one of the oldest American long-running printmaking firms. I plan to get them matted, framed, and then maybe hang them in my studio. Which one do you like the best? I'm kind of digging the Spring Bouquet with the blush colored rose.
* I linked to wikipedia ( I know, I know) because I vehemently disapprove of the design elements of the Currier and Ives website!
