Fine Art/nathaniel currier lithograph


I have a black and white lithograph entitled Catching a trout. subtitled We hab you now,sar.New York Publishers by N. Currier 152 Nasseau Street. Any idea on value,and time frame.  Thank you for your time. Phyliss

This print from 1854 is actually on of the less racist portrayals of an African American by Currier and Ives. It was based on a painting by A. F. Tait.

If this is the original version from 1854 and is in excellent condition, at auction you could expect $3,000 or so.
Later editions probably $300-$500.
