Fine Art/currier and ives print


i also have a home for thanksgiving print by g h durrie with the number 186. how can two people have the same print. if i were to sell this where would i go to do so.

Dear Deborah,

The 186 is actually part of the date of the original lithograh; 1867. The 7 did not show up on the stone. If you are sure you have an original (large folio - image size 14 5/8 x 25 1/16") and it is in good condition; you can contact any of the large auction houses such as Sothebys and Christies for consignment in their next appropriate auction. You can get their websites through a search. There are also numerous galleries that carry Currier & Ives original prints. You can find them online by using key words such as "Original Currier & Ives". You will also get websites that will help you determine if your print is original.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
