LAST WEEK AT THE AUCTION
#10 is beautiful Currier & Ives Print. This wonderful example brought $800 in Cottone in Geneseo NY. Titled "The Grandest Palace Drawing Room Steamers in the World" & Copyrighted in 1878, the values of these amazing examples of 19th Century American and Lithograph have been on a decline. I am hoping this is a sign of life as they are not making more of them…well.
The truth is, many items like this are reproduced and what lead to their fall in the values of the originals. It seems the new generations don’t care if it’s the original or a facsimile. I say, nothing beats the real thing, but when the real thing became un-affordable…reproductions came out. This happened and happens to this day with so many things. I guess when we all live in the matrix in a few years, it won’t matter. I kid ?
I say, if you can….always go with the original or real thing. Especially if investment is part of your passion. And it’s a buyers market.
