Crockwell, Douglass

Price: $3,450.00
Description:  Enjoying a beer on the boat

Comment: The series was quite a long one and undertaken by a variety of illustrators, though the bulk of the examples that I’ve seen were done by Crockwell. I do not have a copy of the printed ad to accompany the purchase… at least not yet. As is typical in the series, we see refreshment generally and beer specifically as both enjoyment and reward. 

Price: $3,450  (includes domestic shipping)
