    Description

    Benjamin Harrison and Grover Cleveland: Balance Scale Toy. One of the cleverest campaign novelties of the 19th century, or anytime for that matter! Opposing candidates Harrison and Cleveland are depicted as babies wrapped in an American flag diaper, suspended from a wooden balance beam scale. It measures 7" from end to end. The bisque figurines are hand-painted and likely made in France or Germany. The Harrison one is perfect. The Cleveland has a two-part chip on the bottom and backside which has been neatly repaired and is not noticeable from the front. These babies are a little "soiled" and will clean up real nice!
