Harrison & Tyler: Pair of Cotton Folk Art Pennants....
Harrison & Tyler: Pair of Cotton Folk Art Pennants. Hand-painted pennants used in the Log Cabin and Hard Cider campaign of 1840, each attached to a 22" dowel or stick with planed down ends (possibly for insertion in the frame of a bandwagon or float). Each pennant or flag is made of blue cotton with orange painted letters. They measure approximately 9 1/2" x 14" each. One reads: "North, Bend, Farmer." The other says "Old, Virginia, Never, Tire." William Henry Harrison was the North Bend Farmer and his running mate (Tyler, of "Tippecanoe and Tyler, Too!" fame) hailed from the Old Dominion, Virginia. The sticks are wrapped with cord and tassels are attached, as well. These came out of an estate sale Way Down East in Maine.
