Description:

The visible portion of the print measures 9 3/8 x 23 inches and features a herd of what cattle being watched over by some cowboys on horseback, with one of the horses clearly marked with the "Spear" broad arrow like symbol on its flank. The print has been colorized with water colors. It is marked with the L.A. Huffman copyright in the lower right corner and "The Spear (arrow head) Cut On Big Wolf Mountain" in the lower left, both in white ink. The frame has some light border carving and measures approximately 11 3/8 x 25 1/8 inches. Laton Alton Huffman (1854-1931) was among the few photographers to photograph the reality ranching life in Montana in the late 19th century and enlarged many of his earlier photographs later in his life.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, the image distinct with minimal wear and vibrant color with minimal fading and some scattered light staining. The ink markings are crisp. The frame is very good with some scattered light handling/storage marks.
