Charles H. Hubbell
Water Colours

Forty original watercolors of historic pre-WW1 and early WW1 aircraft. Believed to be some of Charles Hubbells favorites as they were kept by him, then later sold by his estate. They were exhibited during Hubbells one-man show at the Smithsonian in 1960 and at the EAA Museum in Oshkosh in 1987 - many still have their Smithsonian exhibit numbers present.

The watercolors are especially important, today, (since The 2003 Centennial of Flight..Many of the subject aeroplanes are now 100 years Old!) as they are all of the Pioneer era and beautifully illustrate the competition that the Wright Brothers were facing.

There are four basic variations of matting/framing: The watercolors are painted on watercolor board (not paper) that is 13 x 17 inch in size. The overall matted and framed, under glass, sizes vary in four sizes: 16 x 18; 17.5 x 21.5; 19 x 22; and 19.5 x 23.5 (Metal frames and glass with the dark all black matts) There are 25 of the original Watercolors of the Pioneer era remaining out of 40. (Some not shown) The titles are Hubbells.

I want to keep approx a dozen. Until they are reduced to that number, they are for sale @ $2,900 ea. OR in quantity of three or more @ $2,500 each. Trade offers for vintage aviation items considered. Items marked SOLD are no longer available.
