Shall I Play? Only if I Can Breathe
Alice. New York: N. Currier, 1844.
Before Ives joined the firm, Nathaniel Currier produced hundreds of small, decorative prints like this one of an attractive young lady seated at a piano forte. Please note -- Alice, in her star-covered gown, has an impossibly small waist illustrative of the restrictive corsets then in high fashion.
