  • Pattern: Currier & Ives - The Great East River Suspension Bridge, 1881
  • Vintage: 1980's
  • Made in USA
  • Details:  This style of decoupage art work was very popular in the 1980's and feels just as appropriate today.  This one was made using a print from a Currier & Ives lithograph copyrighted in 1881.  Currier and Ives made a few lithographs of this bridge, undoubtedly a tremendous feat at the time.  We have seen another similar lithograph with lots of sailboats but no river boat (steamship).  We like this image because it has both the sailboats and the steamships which really captures the era.  The caption on the bottom reads: " The Great East River Suspension Bridge, Connecting the cities of New York and Brooklyn".   The print is set on a wooden board that has a carved edge.  This is Old Americana at its best.  Great decor in a study, office, or what about an entrance hall in a New York or Brooklyn home?!   A great gift for an Americana collector.  We have several other Currier and Ives items, please search our site if interested.  If you're gifting this item, you may want to replace the "cord" in the back with picture hanging wire.

Currier and Ives was started by Nathaniel Currier in 1835.  It was a successful American printmaking firm in New York City that produced prints from paintings by fine artists as black and white lithographs and later colored by hand, usually by German immigrants.  In 1857 Nathaniel partnered with James Merritt Ives and the company became Currier & Ives.  Currier and Ives was the most successful company of lithographers in the U.S.   Their works included lithographs of American life with different themes like:  hunting, fishing, city life, rural scenes, historical scenes, ships, railroads, winter scenes, still lifes and so much more.  Currier died in 1888 and Ives was active in the firm until his death in 1895. Both Currier's and Ives's sons followed their fathers in the business, until they closed in 1907.  Today, original Currier and Ives prints are much sought by collectors, and modern reproductions of them are popular decorations.
