We have 13 game bird prints, stamped on the envelope "American Wildlife Institute". We think they are from the 30's or 40's and would like to know their value.
What kind of prints are they. Etchings? Lithographs? photo reproductions?
Are there marking on them? I can't see anything on like about prints put out by the American Wildlife Institute. Is tehre anymore info?
I also have one print, which I believe is a photo reproduction but still curious about worth
The American Wildlife Institute was a non-profit in the late 1930s, which later became the Wildlife Management Institute, which is still around. I googled "American Wildlife Institute" in Google Book/Magazine search and found the information in a 1985 issue of Field and Stream.
Here is a link that might be useful: Wildlife Management Institute
Good find. The only prints I could locate on a search were two bird prints sold for about $12 U.S. in the U.K. on their Ebay site. If you go to the site ideefixe linked, you can find a lot of info and contact info there, and maybe even get some answers of when they were published and who did the artwork. The pics I saw were quite nice.
I'd call their PR office (media relations), find out if they have an archive or library and ask about the prints. Who knows--they may want to buy them from you!
