close up of clock

1950's (?) TRIGGER, ROY ROGERS AND DALE EVANS METAL CLOCK, Gibraltar Oxford self starting mantle / shelf clock, wooden base with separate TRIGGER HORSE FIGURE and ROY ROGERS & DALE EVANS FIGURES incorporated in the clock frame, no place on this clock does it say "Roy Rogers" but the clock is known as "The Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Clock" - must have been something in the company literature, metal is a pot metal with a gold tone finish, base is 19 1/2" long, Trigger is about 10" high off the base, overall FINE condition, clock  does not run correctly (most the time it runs, when it runs it sometimes keeps correct time and sometimes it does not, sometimes it does not run at all), I would estimate the finish to be approximately 80% still present, most of what is missing is from Trigger's head (in reality, his head does not look shiny silver, it is the darker color that old pot metal looks so the difference of where the finish is and is not is not so apparent in reality - my photos exaggerate the difference), there is also some light wear to the finish on Dale's and Roy's heads and more to the back of the clock, wear on the finish of the base     #CC27172    $125.00 as is

EARLY 1800's HAND-COLORED ENGRAVING WITH HORSE GOING THROUGH SOME EXERCISES, my scan is not good (fuzzy) because I scanned it in the frame, 17" x 14" not including the frame, I think it is a French (but maybe Spanish or Italian) bookplate, above the man on horseback it says "deriere de Tuilerie", individuals in the engraving are identified (e.g. the man on the horse is "L'iluftre - Conte de Suiffons", the guy on the far left is  M. le C.  de Fiat"), it is on paper with high rag content, it seems to be drymounted on board, reverse of the picture has framer's tag that reads "Catalada Fine Arts, Inc.", "Old Military Engraving", frame is modern black wood in poor condition with no glass, so you might not want the frame, engraving is in good condition with some foxing, also some discoloration (got wet?) in the top left corner and a very, very slight discoloration on the bottom left corner (really difficult to see)    SP30081    $75.00..

#EQ29321 DAS PFERDEBUCH DES AMERIKANISCHEN FARMERS, book by Robert Stewart, text is in German, 592pp., not dated, I think published 1880's might be from the 1860's, I am not certain what this book is about because I cannot translate the title or the text, but there are lots of engravings of horses all the way through the book so I am inclined to think it is about taking care and breeding horses, lots of horse anatomy illustrations, octovo hardcover in original brown cloth binding with gilt lettering on spine, very good condition - tight hinges and spine, pages unfoxed and clean but very yellow, 8 or ten pages have been turned down to mark the page, the corner of 4 pages have broken off where the pages had been turned down (but they are still in the book), there is a small bookworm hole on the bottom of pages 21 to 69, wear on edges of cover, cover has mild wear, discoloration and some finger prints, edges of spine have very light chipping, inscription in pencil on first front endpage,  printed in Milwaukee Wisconsin    #EQ29321    $45.00

IN THE OAK TREE SHADE, 1903 COLOR PRINT OF HORSES, on board, unframed, board is 11 x14', print is 7 7/8 x 5 3/4", print is in fine condition with some tiny shiny spots (probably from glue from the production process), but I doubt they will show after the print is under glass, the board has a stain and some damage, there is a small tear on the left side of the print, most of the defects will disappear under the lip of a frame, even the tear on the right edge will disappear under thicker lip    #PR28353    $20.00

EARLY 1800's HAND-COLORED WATERCOLOR COPPERPLATE ETCHING OF FIREWORKS PLACE IN THE PRATER (Vienna, Austria), etching by Joseph Ziegler,  plate is titled in both German (Der Feuerwerks Platz im Prater) and French (La Place du Feu d'Artifice au Prater).  It has "Zielgler" on the bottom left.  It has "C.P.S.P.M." under the German title,  and something that looks like "Artaria Comple" in the middle between the titles.  There is a "23" on the top right of the print (indicating it is a bookplate?).  It looks to be on paper of high rag content.  The print area is debossed as an etching will be, but there is no handwritten signature.  The art area is 16 1/2" x 10 7/8" (41.8 cm x 27.5 cm), the matted area is 22" x 18" and the size of the whole piece is 29" x 25" including the frame which is 1/2" thick.  The frame is gold colored wood (looks like it is probably pine).  This print looks like it was framed in the 1950's.  It is sealed up in the frame (see photos of back of frame - 1, 2).

The brown trim decoration around the print looks like it was applied over the the paper (rather than printed on the paper).  Also, it looks like the area inside the border might have also been applied to the paper outside the border (note how the paper inside the border does not have as much foxing and aging as the paper outside the border).  I am not certain that is the situation (I cannot get the framing open to investigate further) and I do not have a guess as to why it would be arranged that way.
There is a very light vertical bend (very difficult to see even in person) through the center of the print (another reason I think this piece was originally a bookplate).  It goes though the whole print - not just the inside area. Which leads me to believe my theory that the inside area of the print is applied to the outside area is an incorrect theory.  The vertical bend is pretty much nonexistent which leads me to believe that this print has been dry-mounted.

Condition - is very good to fine.  There is some foxing (spotting from age).  There are some stray marks from the printing process - in particular note that the letters of the German title are smeared in 2 places.  I am not certain what the blue-black mark is on the bottom right of the print (probably a stray printing process mark, but I am not certain).  I am also not certain what the brownish spot is on the right side of the matte.
The frame has a moderate amount of wear with several dents, a few holes (see scan at left of the corner of the print and frame) and some of the color has worn off.  Please note that what looks like a crease on the right side of the picture in the first scan above is a light reflection - there is not crease there.

#PR28971    $325.00 **

I strongly prefer the buyer to see this print before purchasing it.  I live in Sayre PA (close to Elmira, Ithaca and Binghamton NY)
