W.S. Cleveland's Minstrels Show
Original Vintage Stone Litho

Some discoveries are so extraordinary it is almost impossible to put a price on it!

Since this poster is most likely the only one in existence , no need to state the obvious , "SUPER Rare".  What I will say is this is unquestionably one of the most Gorgeous stone lithos I've ever seen in 35 years collecting vintage historical memorabilia!    I would imagine this would upstage even the Picasso you may have hanging on your wall   . . As you can see from the enlargeable images above and below, the artwork is spectacular!   A Beauty, what else need to be said?  You'll never see this again, except maybe in a museum!  

Very good condition with minor expert restoration in the upper border and title area.  Has been professionally linen backed and looking Amazing!  Imagine how it will look in your living room or office?

W.S. Cleveland's Minstrels Show (Courier Litho, Buffalo, NY, 1890s). Poster (27.5" X 39.5").
Minstrel shows became popular American entertainment from the 1840s through the turn-of-the-century. Some shows featured white actors wearing blackface in a standard three-part musical comedy, while others starred black performers. One of the best was W. S. Cleveland's Colossal Colored Carnival Minstrels run by William S. Cleveland (1860-1923). His shows were known for their "beautiful and costly stage settings, exquisite costumes...and the originality and genuine merit of every artist." This stone litho poster is from one of Cleveland's productions, and it's been expertly restored to minimize signs of handling: missing paper and tears in the top border/title, chips in the right and left borders. With those surprisingly only minor flaws (for a 125+ year old poster)  restored, now looks Amazing!   A CVTreasures first. Very Good on Linen.
