    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.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
