Name of Poster: Chung Ling Soo – Crystal Casket
Size: 1/2 sheet – 22.25” x 30”
Lithographer: James Upton, Birmingham
Date: circa 1910
Fair condition (B) / Mounted – This is a very rare Soo image, that one rarely sees. The poster was originally torn on the bottom, but it was put together with expert restoration during the mounting process.
The colors are bright, but if you get very close, you can see the areas where it has been restored.
Overall, in our opinion, it looks better than fair, but it does have its issues. It does look remarkable for a piece of paper that is over 100 years old.
