Description

Very early and fine full color wood engraving, showing young men and young oxen in sentimental snow covered setting, “Hauling Home the Christmas Boughs”. This is one of the earliest American insurance color advertisments we have seen, done a few short years after the Civil War. Designed to be a window poster, with a gratuitous Rutland Burlington & VT Valley RR timetable on reverse. Colors fresh, very faint folio fold, overall near-mint.
