    Abraham Lincoln: Autograph and Middleton Chromolithograph in Highly Ornate Frame. 3.5" x 1" cut signature of "Abraham Lincoln" framed together with a chromolithograph by Middleton of Cincinnati. The frame is one of the most ornate, gold gesso frames we have ever seen with floral rosettes at the corners and lattice-work design. The "frame" encircling the signature and portrait gives the impression of a "frame-within-a-frame". The gesso work is nearly 100% intact. Light toning to one side of the signature, of little import. Overall measurements 26.5" x 29.5" x 2.75" deep. A very impressive, fantastic presentation!
