    Andrew Jackson: A Rare 1820s Thread Box with Colorful Portrait Under Glass. Not to be confused with the Jackson & Adams sewing boxes that feature black & white portraits on the underside of the lid. This present variety is much rarer, and has the multicolor image on the top of the lid. " Andrew Jackson" below portrait. The lid surface measures 3.5" x 5". We know specifically of only three other examples: a damaged one sold a year or two ago by a New England dealer, one ensconced in one of the leading old private collections, and one sold by The Political Gallery in an early-1990s full color fixed-price catalog. That example was featured on the front cover of the catalog, and was one of the most requested items in the offering. Condition of the present example is excellent. It presents a very special opportunity for the sophisticated collector of premier 3-D political memorabilia.
