    Charming 1840 William Henry Harrison Columbia Star Child's Tea Service This attractive design with Harrison's trademark log cabin as its motif, was by far the most widely-distributed political china made before 1880. A full service includes an extraordinary variety of pieces, ranging from tureens and serving pieces to a chamber pot! Among the scarcer forms are the miniature pieces which comprised a child's tea set. We offer here ten pieces, including (rare) lidded sugar bowl and creamer, four cups, and four saucers. All are in excellent condition (one saucer has a very fine hairline, and a couple of pieces have bits of minor, typical age browning). The cups are 1.75" tall, the saucers 3.875" in diameter. The creamer is 2.75" tall, and the sugar bowl is 3.75". Ten pieces in total.

    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.
