Mother purchased it at an antique shop decades ago. Purchased in Chicago land area.
Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be an engraving printed by Thomas Doney (born France, active New York 1844 - 1849). The print is titled "The Child's First Prayer" and noted it was published by the American Fine Art Association, Chicago. The margin also noted the print was entered into the Library of Congress in 1866. I searched for the print in the online archives and it did not show up, which is curious. It may be that the label was previously switched at some point.
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable engravings printed by Thomas Doney. Please note that asking or retail prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
