Description

This print features a bearded Abraham Lincoln seated in front of a pot-bellied stove with a dog lying beside him. The only light appears to be coming from the small opening of the stove. There are faint faces of two men on Lincoln's left. Lincoln is wearing his stovepipe hat and has his legs crossed with one foot resting on the base of the stove and his arms resting on the arm rests of the chair. The oval-shaped maker's mark is embossed in the lower left corner of the print with "Campbell" neatly handwritten beside it.
