    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
