New York: Currier & Ives, 1893.
Original lithograph with modern hand-coloring. 19.25 x 25.75" unframed.
Color lithograph rendering the head-to-head 1893 America's Cup race between the Vigilant and the Valkyrie with supporting boats following closely behind. Currier & Ives called themselves the "Printmakers to the People" and they produced thousands of images that chronicled the growth of the United States. Founded in 1834, Currier & Ives produced high quality lithographs until the business closed in 1907. The piece has been expertly restored.
