Baer notes that a part of the edition of 850 of the two large Sueno y Mentira de Franco plates were cut and issued in this form in 1939. This issue is rare.
The upper left corner of the plate has been re-attached. This and other plates have some pale glue-staining at the extreme upper sheet edge.
The viewing showcases the most comprehensive selection of limited-edition handbags and Supreme accessories to ever come to Christie’s.
