This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
During his college years, Joseph Clinton Shepherd and his brother lived for a time with the Crow Indians of the great northwest. He held a lifelong love of all things western and dedicated much of his life to painting western scenes and animals. Here is a beautiful Shepherd portrait of a gangly, big-pawed pedigreed pup, with big sad eyes. The tag line for the ad is "A New Thoroughbred," designed to attach the same level of quality pedigree that the pup obviously possesses to Remington's new line of "Nitro Express" corrugated shells. The standee measures 36" x 34-1/2" at its longest points, and displays only a few frontal imperfections: two creases in the puppy's head that do not break color, a small chip out of the left of the big red circle, and some light wear to the bottom corners. One of the two locking tab extensions of the standee supports is missing and the other is weak, and the back seam has been reattached/reinforced with paper tape. The display still stands quite nicely. The front's graphics are glowingly colorful, giving a Minty appearance to the item that technically would grade as Excellent.
