Fine Art/Currier and Ives


I have a print titled "Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning".  The size is 8.75" x 13.25"

Bottom right of print reads "Lith by currier and ives".
Bottom left reads "painted by G. H. Durrie".

Is it a reprint?  Do reprints have much worth?


Dear Sheila,

Your Currier and Ives print is a copy. The original was released in the large folio size at 18.5 x 27 inches (image area only).

Reproductions, especially those not released in the original size and hand colored, are of decorative value only.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards,

Fine Art
