Sander, Jacob [Sander Wood Engraving Co.] Kuppenheimer engraved prints
Chicago Sander Wood Engraving Co. 1975 No Binding Very Good Print Folio - over 12 - 15 Leyendecker, J. C.
These three original prints were engraved by Jacob Sander in the mid-1920's, based on the then popular Kuppenheimer ad campaign by J.C. Leyendecker. Sander based the wood engravings on current ads made by Leyendecker. He engraved around forty fashion subjects for newspaper advertising by the Sander Engraving Company of Chicago, Ill. No signature or date is present, and they are not a limited edition set (although the Sander Engraving Co. is gone, and original blocks most likely sold off or destroyed, therefore no others may be produced). These are prints from the original blocks, but most likely "struck" (or printed) in the mid-1970s. As they are not titled prints, so I will title them by description. MEASUREMENTS: "Kuppenheimer w/ seated man on right" - 7-3/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Kuppenheimer w/ trophy" - 7-1/4" x 6-1/4" image, 13" x 9" overall size. "Untitled baseball throw" - 6-1/4" x 6" image, 13" x 9" overall size. CONDITION: All images in fair to good condition, with no flaws, creases, etc. I am not a paper expert, so I don't know what type they are printed on; seems to be a higher quality paper, almost vellum like in appearance. Not previously framed, no tape marks or hinges present.
