1900 Print (The Flower-Seller's Revenge) from The Clown's Duel

There is only 1 item left in stock.

This humorous print entitled "The Flower-Seller's Revenge" comes from The Clown's Duel and Other Stories Without Words, published by E.S. Gorham (New York) in about 1900.  These 4 narrative color illustrations show a poor boy who asks a rich man to buy his flowers.  The man brushes him off, then preens in a mirror and sits down to a fancy meal.  The boy ties the table leg to a car, which whisks off the tablecloth and food as it moves up the road.  The page measures 9.75" high by 6.625" wide and us a medium-weight tan-colored paper.  The last panel is signed with initials which are difficult to read.  In very good condition, although due to the acidic content and age of the paper, the page has yellowed, particularly around the edges.
