Description:

This Winchester print was used in a variety of Winchester advertisements and depicts a barn setting with white "bear dogs" in the foreground and two large brown dogs that may be bloodhounds in the background. These dogs were reportedly part of the Winchester family hunting pack. The lower left corner is signed by the artist "H. R. Poore/Philadelphia". The walnut frame measures approximately 41 1/2 inches in width and 32 inches in height overall, with the observable area of the print measuring approximately 35 1/2 inches in width and 25 3/4 inches in height.

Rating Definition:

Very good as trimmed overall showing strong color and detail with a few minor tears and handling/storage marks. The period added frame shows strong varnish with some minor handling/storage marks throughout and some moderate chipping on an upper corner.
