Currier & Ives Prints:

Started as N. Currier in 1834, the Currier & Ives firm is probably the best known lithographic printer in the United States. Calling themselves "the Grand Central Depot for Cheap and Popular Prints" they advertised their products as "colored engravings for the people." They produced most of the prints as black and white lithographs and then had the colors painted by hand. Currier & Ives' prints reflected the Victorian-era middle class sensibilities and interests. The Henry Ford has a collection of over 800 Currier & Ives prints, dating from 1840 to 1892.
