Oval image in black and white with only red and rust highlighted in areas for color. Man seated with young boy on lap aside a round table - man dangling pocket watch for boy to see. From the Inventory Listing of Sidney A. Alpert "Father's Pride/ (oval) - S"
Currier & Ives reinforced the concept of the ideal family through prints of happy parents with their well-behaved children. The firm produced seven different versions of Father's Pride, including this design with a father holding a child on his lap. The images reveal the Victorian way of thinking about child-rearing.
