What is approximate value of an Ullman Mfg Co. print from the late 1800s or early 1900s?

This is a difficult question to answer because curiosity about the prints is higher than the demand for them. Most of the interest has been generated by people discovering pictures in attics and basements or at garage sales and hoping they've stumbled onto a treasure. The reality is Ullman Mfg. Co. mass produced lots and lots of prints and photographs, and distributed them widely. Some prints may be easier to find than others, however.

Bear in mind the value of an item is dictated by how readily available it is in the marketplace at the time a person decides to buy, how much the buyer wants the print, and competition from other buyers. If someone documents the available prints and other ephemera, collectors may show more interest, leading to an increase in value.

In general, Ullman framed lithographs sell for $35-90 in online auctions and on commercial websites, and a sometimes for a little more, $115-140, at live auctions. Antique stores tend to overprice the merchandise: recent [December 2010] prices recorded from common prints with price tags of $195 (Swinburne Seascape) to $375 (Priscilla, "Why don't you speak for yourself, John?"). To put this in perspective, the identical framed Priscilla image sold at auction for $80 in 2006, and for $25 in 2008.

Ullman postcards are also plentiful and cheap, ranging in price from $2-20, with most selling in the $4-10 range. Due to the wide variety they're inexpensive and fun to collect, but they have virtually no investment value at this time.

Chiaroscuro is the use of value contrasts to produce modeling. Artists use it by making the lightest parts of a subject very light, and the shadows very dark. Often an artist will make a value scale to help them determine what values will seem most realistic.

What is the Price of lotton glass vase?

Hi, The price of Lotton Glass depends on many variables. Which Lotton made it? There are 7 Lottons. Charles, the Father, who has been blowing glass since the early 1970's. John, Daniel and David the sons of Charles. Jeremiah, Joshua and Timothy Lotton, the grandsons of Charles. Plus there is Jerry Herr, Charles's nephew and Scott Bayless who work at Charles's studio. John no longer blows glass but does real estate development. The age, shape, complexity, weight, design and appeal of the piece also determine value. The more complex the piece, the more expensive. To get an idea of value I would suggest going to www.ebay.com and running a search for Lotton to get a feel of the pieces that are available and the prices they realize. You can also go to www.lottonglass.com and www.lottongallery.com to see pieces that are available from Lotton Studios. There is also a web site for the Lotton Glass Collector's Club which is www.lottonglassclub.com. Here will be additional information regarding Lotton Glass! Hope This Helps! Bernie Brzostek, a collector of Lotton Glass! bjbrzostek@aol.com

Describe paper clothing that failed?

My mother sent me to school on the first day of fourth grade (1964) in a paper outfit she bought from Grants Department Store in Freeport, Long Island. It was a lime green and hot pink paisley printed pleated skirt, pink vest and white short sleeved blouse. I thought I was the most beautiful thing in that outfit! I told my classmates all about it and I vaguely remember that not one person believed it was made from paper. I was a "walker" like most of the kids in my elementary school. The walk home was less than ten short blocks. When I was about half way home the skies opened up and torrential rain washed the color out of my clothes into my white knee socks! I was surrounded by kids who were now shouting, laughing and calling me "the underwear girl"; fitting for a kid walking home in her briefs and undershirt. Throughout high school my classmates occasionally reminded me of the underwear girl episode I tried so hard to forget. Years later at a reunion, I was reminded of the event one last time. "Hey, do you remember that time when we were in fourth grade and you wore that paper dress to school and it rained on the way home?"

What is that motivates most collectors to buy contemporary art?

Either a true understanding and love for the art, or a desire to fit in amongst the art community. In the case of the latter, the collector would be made fun of in private by the artists themselves.

Where can you find information about an Ullman Manufacturing Co sepia lithograph?

According to one entry on an Ullman genealogy website, the Ullman Manufacturing Corporation was founded about 1888 by Nathan, Max, Louis and Isidor Ullman and Mark Stiles in New York City. The address was 319 McKibbin St., Brooklyn, New York, in 1946. I can find no evidence of its existence after that date. They did a big business about 1900-1915 in the sale of framed reproductions, postcards, theatre posters, jigsaw puzzles, books, etc. Their lithographic reproductions were apparently inexpensive and widely sold. They were not the sort of thing passed down as a family heirloom, but were stored away when they were no longer fashionable, and are now found in antique shops and online auctions at prices ranging from a few dollars for a postcard to possibly $100 for a framed lithograph in excellent condition.
