"Treegob's Variety Store" by Marian Lerer, Amer., (1928-2017)
Regular price $175
Lithograph, Ca. 1950's, Ed. unknown, 5-15/16 x 11-3/16, unsigned, on cream wove paper. While I could not find a reference to this store, it was possibly a local neighborhood institution for Lerer while growing up, as a Joseph Treegob resided at 4083 Landcaster Ave., Phladelphia in 1924, where Lerer later attended art school. Regardless, it is a charming print, full of amusing quirky details in the shop window, including a favored cat raiding the fish tank under a sign wittily proclaiming "We Have Wrigley's". Wriggly fish perhaps....
