John Lennon's "Bag One"

Here we have an unusual item from John Lennon....his famous Bag One artwork. Bag One was a suite of lithographs by John Lennon that were given to Yoko Ono as a wedding gift in 1969.  A series of fourteen original lithographs , each was pulled on BFK Rives paper at The Bank Street Atelier, Ltd., in New York. The edition was limited to 300 examples, with each print individually signed by John Lennon and numbered 1 to 300. This exhibition caused quite a controversy as to whether these lithographs were art or pornography, and eventually the art was confiscated by Scotland Yard while on exhibit in London. John was later exonerated by the British courts, but  many of the prints were mishandled and never returned to the Lennons. These lithographs are on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and sort after by the most discriminating of art collectors.
