In April of 2006, I wrote a little post about an odd print I'd discovered in the trash. The print was produced by Ullman Manufacturing Co. At the time, I had no idea the post would spawn such a wide-ranging and long string of comments. Since the post appeared, more than 25 readers have left comments. The Ullman conversation has taken on a life of its own. Over the years, it has become clear to me—through the nature of the comments—that there is a vast, untapped interest in Ullman Manufacturing lithographs. To continuing to spread the word about Ullman—and in hopes of answering a few of the questions that readers have posted—today I'm featuring some of the comments from the original post.
- I have a lithograph of "a little book worm" from your company that was my mothers and wonder what the value of it would be. It says it is an original lithograph print dated early 1800's with old glass and frame. Posted by: gail morin | November 17, 2007
- I have one with lady on a bench with her hat laid down beside her. She is stroking a dove and has many flying around. It seems to be old English housing in the background. Do you have any idea of its value? Posted by: Garrett | February 11, 2008
- I am inquiring about the 1901 scene of the pilgrim and woman. My mother always said that it was John Alden and Priscilla. They are sitting in front of a fireplace and have a spinning wheel and fun. Please, I would like to know if there is any value to this. Posted by: Sherill Fosland | April 21, 2008
- I have a framed, lithograph, copyright 1909, in a wooden frame with an inset piece of wood and metal letters saying The Hanging of the Crane, with a likeness of the old fire place crane, copper coloration on the metal. The picture is of a young couple, man in a wing back chair, young woman at his feet sitting on a stool. Both are gazing into the open fire place, showing a glowing fire, and a hanging crane with a pot on it. It was my grandmothers, my mother's now mine. Can you give me any information? Thank you, Kathleen Sat. Posted by: kathleen sat | April 28, 2008
- As I was going through my grandparents box of old family photo's (from the late 1800's to early 1900's, I found two reversed pictures on glass by The Ullman MFG Co. one dated 1899 the other 1900. One a family Christmas photo the other the same family, but in a park scene. Here is my question: Because they were in with my family photo's, would this mean these photo's are of my family? I also have several postcards of my grandfather in his postman uniform with Ullman MFG Co. written on the back. Can you help me out? Thank-you, Cathy Cross. Posted by: cathy L. Cross | May 23, 2008
- I am looking for a particular print by the Ullman Mfg Co. It depicts a Victorian woman in a pink dress with a rose in her hair. She is gazing out of a window at a dove. It is a very beautiful print. I have only seen one or two that were sold on eBay. I think the print was 1902. Posted by: Patricia Carideo | May 26, 2008
- I am looking for a particular Ullman litho. It is of a man and woman sitting in a boat by the shore or dock. The woman is in a pink dress and is holding some type of flower in her hand. She is looking away from the man. He is in some type of uniform or suit and is gazing lovingly at the woman. There is a church behind them in the distance across the water. There are some trees to the right of the boat. It is in an oval frame and is around 19" X 26". If anyone has a print like this and would be willing to part w/ it please contact me. Thank you for any assistance you could provide. Posted by: Jeanene Sink | June 23, 2008.
