100-Year Anniversary Lithograph
In 1994, artist Edgar Smith designed a beautiful limited-edition lithograph to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the School of Nursing.  The lithograph portrays a bronze medallion with Sister Stanislaus and the 1894 Charity Hospital on one side, and modern Charity nurses on the other.  
The lithographs were sold during the 1994 Celebration.  Edgar has made the remaining lithographs from the edition available to us at a greatly reduced cost to benefit the school. These are actual lithographs (not photo posters) on heavy buff-colored paper, and each one is numbered and signed by the artist.  This is your opportunity to purchase a gorgeous original work of art at a very low price.  8.5" x 11". 
($5 for lithograph + $4 shipping = $9)
Gorgeous pre-owned, antique wool Charity capes. Navy blue with red lining, gold CHSN embroidered on collar.  All our capes are sized fairly small, in very good condition (maybe an occassional tiny moth hole) and dry-cleaned. A unique and beautiful piece of Charity history. 
While supplies last. ($200 for cape + $15 shipping = $215)
