    Abraham Lincoln: Salt Print Folk Art Colored Calligraphy. 9" x 11.5" art folk featuring, in the middle, an 1.375" x 2" salt print of a beardless Lincoln (O-21, taken by William Marsh in Springfield, Illinois on May 20, 1860). It appears like a bull's eye within concentric rings, captioned below in fancy calligraphy: "A. Lincoln. Republican Candidate For President in 1860." There are four red, blue and slate gray sunbursts in the corners. It comes with a Letter of Provenance from the consignor indicating that it was purchased over 20 years ago from a retired couple living outside Springfield whose great-grandmother made it shortly after Lincoln received the Republican nomination in Chicago. This unique piece of folk art is in great condition and is ideal for display.

    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.
