Currier & Ives 'Darktown Series' Lithographs.
A pair of original coloured billiard lithographs by Currier & Ives of America. Published in 1882 these cartoon characters came from the 'Darktown Series' of lithographs and reflected social attitudes of the time, it was in fact one of Currier & Ives' most prolific and profitable series. Entitled 'Two To Go!' and 'Got 'Em Both!' by Thomas Worth (1834-1917), a New York artist. Both scenes are of a billiard hall or bar with a group of African American men playing pool or billiards. The first shows a chandelier overhead dripping hot wax on the man leaning over the table to take his shot. The second shows the ensuing mayhem with balls and cues flying into the crowd.
Very Good
