    Description

    Framed Tex & Patches Colt Patent Firearms Advertising Print by Frank Schoonover. Lithograph print on canvas. Measuring 32 x 18 1/2-inches, does not appear to have been cut. COLT'S PATENT FIRE ARMS MANUFACTURING CO. / HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT across the bottom, signed by the artist.
    Condition: Good. Showing finish loss in area from poor lacquer refinish. Noticeable tear along left side of print. Few scattered cracks and creases. Frame showing wear.

    David Mamet's Notes:Beautifully framed. Used to hang in my cabin in Vermont. I was always taken by the small stature of Tex, the Marshall, as measured against the (known) length of the Peacemaker he wears. It would seem to put him round five-two, but Col. Colt, as we know, made all men equal.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
