Asahel Curtis Photograph Signed Mount Rainier 1911 Hand Colored Mounted Framed
- This is an Asahel Curtis photograph of Mount Ranier.
- Signed and dated 1911.
- It appears to be a rare photograph due to the size, mounting, and technique.
- I'm not an art expert, but research points toward this being hand colored, with the edges having some sort of tinting done.
- This was taken before he started using Eastman Kodak Tissue, so I'm assuming the dots around the edge are some sort of glue he used to mount it.
- The mounting material seems to be some sort of rough paper.
- There's some light debris under the frame, but I didn't want to take this out to clean it, as I didn't want to damage anything.
- I'm assuming this is the original frame, but I can't find another one like this.
- The photograph measures approximately 12.5" x 10".
- The frame measures approximately 17" x 15".
- There's a crack on the bottom, right corner of the frame.
- My apologies for the reflections in the pictures, but I found it hard to get a good picture without it.
- Please look closely at all pictures and feel free to message with any questions.
