We are very pleased to be able to offer for your consideration another Baggage Battles Treasure, this antique 1890s lithographic print by J. Hallar.
This antique lithographic print was produced/ published and carries the copyright of Radtke & Lauckner Co. New York 1890. The print is signed J Hallar. J Hallar is one of the contributing artist who worked with the R & L Co. at that time, very little is known of this artist, but many of the artists works were published by R & L Co. This particular print is a long horizontal scene showing a spit of low lying land that crosses from left to right across the horizon. there are three or four low buildings with the mast of a few sailboats along the shore, perhaps this is a fishing village. In the background, running from right to the center of the image is a distant finger of low lands, with the calm waters of a channel separating the two land masses. the print is signed in faded pencil at the lower right corner "J.HALLAR". There is also a very curious, tiny, line drawing seascape with seabirds, and sailboats just along the lower print edge border, about three inches from the lower left corner. This print is matted, and mounted under glass, then framed in an antique faux grained wood frame.
This framed print measures 4 1/2 inches by 19 1/4 (plate impression) the matte window is 4 13/16 by 19 5/8. The overall frame measurement is 12 1/2 by 26 1/2 inches. This framed print weighs 3 pounds 8 ounces.
Condition- The overall condition is very good, there is some yellowing of the paper, but that's to be expected from a print in excess of 120 years old. Most of the yellowing is concentrated along the matte edge. There are two areas in the matte that show some some damage (water?) but fortunately this damage is to the outside borders of the matte away from the print, this damage occurs in the upper right corner, and along the lower edge, 5 inches from the lower left corner. We would recommend a remount. The frame has some chips in the lower left and right corners, the right corner has the most damage (see picture)
If you collect antique American prints/ lithographs, or if you just love the sleepy imagery of this fishing village, this work by the mysterious artist who is J.Hallar will make a very nice addition to your collection.
