"The Blessings of a Wife." This is a Currier & Ives original hand colored lithograph, evenly toned.
16 x 12 in. $300

This is a page from the May 16th, 1868 issue of Harper's Weekly. At the top of the page, there is a cartoon which criticizes women for wanting to have the same social privileges as men. The cartoon is titled "How it would be if some ladies had their own way." On the left there is a scene with a group of men sewing and caring for small children. On the right, a group of women are gathered in a parlor, chatting and smoking cigarettes. Underneath the cartoon there are quite a few classified ads, which have nothing to do with women's issues, but are fun to read nonetheless. Included are ads for artificial legs and arms, ladies' paper collars, and many more!
