Lithos in Disney licensed frames

Lithographs in frames licensed by Disney

The category is dedicated exclusively to Another Rainbow’s large and mini lithographs featuring the original frames licensed by the Walt Disney Corp. For each lithographic release by Another Rainbow, Disney licensed a special framing solution consisting of an aluminium frame and coloured mat(s) that were designed to emphasize and complement the colour themes in the lithographs. This was an exclusive offering available only to the collectors who originally purchased the lithographs directly from Another Rainbow upon their release. However, this framing solution was extremely expensive so the vast majority of buyers opted not to pay the extra fee for these frames. Consequently, these framing solutions have become collectors items in their own right. They are few and far between on the secondary market and in the case of some of the Gold Plate Edition lithographs they are borderline unique! Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we are able to offer arguably the world’s largest selection of Another Rainbow lithographs featuring these original Disney licensed frames.  As a bonus feature for the connoisseurs and avid collectors among you, it is worth noting that most of these lithographs are Gold Plate Editions and several of them even come with the original shipping box from Another Rainbow. When it comes to Carl Barks’s lithographs, you will be pressed to find a more obvious high-end investment than these lithographs.

Sailing The Spanish Main

Sailing The Spanish Main was the first Carl Barks lithograph released with a Disney image. It was published by Another Rainbow in 1982. They started out gently with a very low print run of only 245 copies + 20 artist’s proofs. The lithographs were sold out immediately, and the demand continued to rise. By the mid-1990s Another Rainbow gladly bought back the lithos for prices of up to $5,000 for the standard editions. In 2000, the official value was set at $10,000 for a regular edition of this lithograph. It is said that # 1/245 was sold to a private collector for the staggering amount of $20,000. This particular lithograph is arguablt just as special as it is an artist’s proof (AP 13/20) and is one of only a few of such proofs that have ever been offered for public sale. This particular litho has hung in Barks’ own home and thus been part of his personal collection (photos documenting this provenance will be included with the lithograph). Although this lithograph technically does not feature a frame licensed by Disney, it was uniquely framed according to Carl Barks’s personal instructions with triple matting (gray, red and gold), which perfectly matches the colours of the lithograph. It can be argued that this is the very lithograph that started the trend of coloured aluminium frames and mats for all the subsquent lithographic releases since original licensed frame for Sailing the Spanish Main lithographs was a plain black wooden frame and a white mat. These days, the regular editions of Sailing The Spanish Main are few and far between, and artist’s proofs are virtually impossible to find. When adding the best possible provenance and history to the above facts, you end up with something quite unique. This lithograph is in excellent condition and is of course signed and numbered by Barks. It includes a CoA and Barks has moreover placed a small post-it note on the back of the litho with the wording: “Property of heirs”. Size framed: 71 x 63 cm. This is a unique and exclusive item with the best possible provenance.
