    Description

    Rough Rider Themed Jas. S. Kirk & Co. Soap Advertising Sign A popular theme in advertising after the Spanish American War was to depict the Rough Riders of 1895. This particular ad for Jas. S. Kirk & Co., Chicago, features a Teddy Roosevelt-looking Rough Rider with sword raised. Beautiful bold color and excellently framed, this piece measures 18 1/2" x 33" as framed. Although some professional restoration has been done, the lithograph appears near mint. Upon close inspection a crease shows in the background but is not immediately obvious at first glance. The borders are intact although some lightly restored. A two inch square has been professionally replaced along the right edge near the top in the background. An exceptionally graphic piece lithographed by the Henderson-Achert Krebs company of Cincinnati, copywrited 1894, apparently obtained as a premium by saving wrappers of their soap product. Unique and hardly ever seen, this piece would appeal to advertising and historical collectors alike.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
