    Abraham Lincoln: Dated 1864 Britannia Ice Pitcher. 11" plated or Britannia-ware ice pitcher with hinged lid surmounted by a polar bear. A 1" Abraham Lincoln campaign medal dated 1864 is imbedded on one side, surrounded by a laurel wreath, flanked by oak and berry leaves, beneath an American shield and displayed flags. The reverse side has the name of the owner, Annie Picken, within a central cartouche, surrounded by répousée floral designs. There is a great deal of decorative beading. It is unmarked. Outside of a small hole beneath the bear on one side, it is in excellent condition. Given the Lincoln decoration, it may be considered a presidential campaign item.

    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.
