  1. i have, in my antique shop, a print by maxfield parrish….marked Crane Co, Cleveland, O….with research: 1917-18. It is the “Rubiayat” print. Framed in an exquisite cut-away frame…the print is in pristine shape. I also know that this particular art design was used on Crane Candies’ boxes. Wondering if there is interest amongst the Crane folks for a beautiful art piece.
