At the Ardennes
I have a 1905 Taber Prang copyright black /gray/white picture titled At The Ardennes. The artist appears to be g LAMBERT. I would be interested to know more about the original as I cannot find it in my Internet searches.


"Copyright 1893 by The Taber Art Co., New Bedford, Mass." and "Sweet Sixtee
I bought a lithograph in this week and cannot find anything about it on the web. It is of a girl in a dirndl with apron and has “Copyright 1893 by The Taber Art Co., New Bedford, Mass.” and under that “Sweet Sixteen”. This litho appears to be hand colored and the print is is 21x25 1/2 (drawing portion is 14x19 inches). It doesn’t have an artist name on it, that I can find. I’ve searched the internet with the info printed on it and did not find it anywhere.

1905 Taber Prang Art Co.
Can someone direct me? Our 93 year old aunt has a beautiful framed and matted print. In the lower left corner it states Taber Prang Art Co. Copyright 1905. It was professional mounted so it wouldn't be easy to remove from the frame. Would the print in the lower left hand corner tell me anything or would I need to find a professional art person to learn more?

Cupid's Counselor
This print is in a three opening old frame with Cupid Awake and Cupid Asleep on either side. On the front of the print it says copyright 1892. It does not have the photographers name on it but the other prints do. I looked it up in the Library of Congress copyright office volumes 7-8 page 430 and it says it was copyrighted 1912. It says it was published by Taber Prang. The two other prints say the same on the back. Any info or idea of value would be appreciated.

Arabs In desert
Hello, I have this print of two Arab soldiers with one horse in desert. Very beautiful I might add. It is signed Guilio Rosati at the bottom. 1905, from Taber-Prang Art Co. Would appreciate any information on the beautiful piece. Thank you


I am also the great great granddaughter of Louis Prang. The story of Taber-Prang goes like this, In 1890 cheap imitations of Prang's cards were being made.Louis Prang refused to lower his standards and ceased the production of L. Prang cards. Though he did not stop his artistic painting but continued after merging with a co. called Taber. Taber-Prang then relocated from Boston to Springfield in 1892. Taber is the art company not an ancestor. I have never heard of Talver Prang either.


Taber Prang Print "Lady with Fan" by Faivre circa 1900
I received a numbered Taber Prang print, approximately 10x15 inches in size, from a late family member. The subject of the print is Faivre's "The Lady with a Fan". I am trying to more accurately date this gilt framed print.


Taber Prang Seascape
My husband's uncle left him a seascape painting featuring a single clipper ship done in beautiful blues and gold tones. The painting is framed under glass & bears the signature Taber Prang in the lower righthand corner. The backing is tagged Original Pastel Painting by T. Prang. It was sold by the Guenthers Gallery, Cleveland, OH. Is there anything you can tell us about the artist? We've read that Taber Prang was a print company


Louis Prang Print
Are you sure it is not "Taber Prang". They were the Prang company in the early 1900s and distributed these prints.
