About

19th century pair of framed Italian hand colored engravings One engraving depicts a scene from Florence, Italy The other depicts a scene from Roma, Italy A fine pair of framed prints with labels from Gumps on the back Each engraving measures 16" wide x 11" high Each frame measures 24.5" wide x 20.5" high Good antique condition, consistent with age, please see all images In 1861, Gertrude Gump and her husband established their business in San Francisco and were joined by the Gump brothers, Solomon and Gustave. Newly minted millionaires from the California Gold Rush showed an interest in the shop and the brothers expanded their collection of old world art and new world design. S & G Gump was born, and the tradition of excellence continues today. With the beginning of a new century, Solomon Gump handed over the reins to his son, Abraham Livingston. Soon thereafter, the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 forced Gump's to rebuild and restock the store. They looked to the Far East for new inspiration, sending buyers to Japan and China to find exotic rugs, porcelain, silks, bronzes and jade. By the 1920s, San Francisco was roaring right along with the rest of the country. Gump’s and The City had become intertwined, Gump's being synonymous with San Francisco in its elegance, worldly style, and maverick spirit. A fine opportunity!
