    Description

    Sally Franklin Cigar Label Showing Benjamin Franklin. Full color lithographed 4.5" x 4.5" outer label with gold-embossed highlights. An elderly Benjamin Franklin and a male guest are shown being served tea by a young woman. Below the scene is a close-up of the lady, Franklin's daughter Sarah "Sally" Franklin Bache (1743-1808). The portrait is taken from a 1793 oil painting by John Hoppner, which now hangs in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. Scenes such as that depicted on this label are usually fanciful excursions; however, Sally Franklin Bache actually did take care of her father during his declining years. Rounded corners and scalloped edges as made. Mint condition.
