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.
