Happy Thanksgiving 2012
I went through the posters we have from Moran Place looking for a Thanksgiving theme. It might not be a Thanksgiving cornucopia but it's a cornucopia of fruit and roses and makes a perfect background for a holiday card.
The print is titled "Southern Fruits" and the colors are really that vibrant. The size is approximately 13 9/16 inches by 17 9/16 inches. I've seen other versions online that are framed but the colors are so faded as to be a shadow of what it really looks like. We figure the colors on our print have remained so bright because the poster has been kept rolled up and away from any light sources for the past 75 to a 100 years. Considering its age the print is in remarkable condition.
