    Description

    Daniel Webster: Papier-Mâché Stogie Case. 2 5/8" x 5 1/4" stogie case with hand-painted portrait of Daniel Webster on the lid. Webster was a perennial hopeful, but ran for President on the Whig ticket in 1836, which is when this case was probably produced. It is complete in all respects, including the leather bellows and embossed paper insert. Some light, normal crazing and wear to the gold-leaf trim. Very fine overall. We believe there are no more than two examples extant and this may, in fact, be unique.
