Up for auction is a marvelous piece from the Franklin Mint! This is The Lookout, an original color etching by Alan Jay Gaines. This lovely piece portrays one of the most significant schooners in American Maritime history - The Lookout.

This piece was on display, but it was kept out of direct sunlight and is in excellent condition. The certificate of authenticity is affixed to the back of the piece (see photo.) Also included are the letter and brochure sent out to collectors about The Lookout. This piece was offered by the Franklin Mint in 1981. Issue price was $125.

This etching bears the signature of the artist and the date (see photo.) It is beautifully framed and double-matted in the original Franklin Mint frame and mat. This is a stunning piece that will make a wonderful addition to your collection!

QUESTIONS?: Please feel free to email me if you have any questions about this item. Everything that I sell is guaranteed authentic.

CONDITION: I try to accurately assess the condition of each item. However, my idea of "excellent condition" may not be your idea of excellent condition. Some of the items come from my closet and others from friends and family. I would never auction something that I would not wear out of the house myself in its current state, but some things may be put up for auction in a previously used state, ie, they could use dry cleaning, washing or ironing. Alas, I would love to get everything cleaned before I list it, but this just isn't possible or practical.

IN ADDITION: Buying something on ebay should be a positive experience for both buyer and seller. I try to describe the items in the most accurate way possible. If t are flaws in an item, I try to clearly outline them. I am only human, however, so if I have missed something, please know that it was unintentional and please contact me and let me know before leaving negative feedback so that we can work out a satisfactory solution. Thanks for checking out my auction and happy bidding!
