    Exceedingly Rare And Important Glass Oil Lamp From The 1840 William Henry Harrison Campaign
    Believed manufactured by Bakewell in Pittsburgh, Penna., this rare item is exciting to political and glass collectors alike. Elegantly etched devices include a log cabin (Harrison's campaign logo), flag on pole, and barrel labeled "hard cider" (another familiar Harrison campaign emblem). Condition is superb but for one chip in underside of base. The brass collar and wick housing, usually missing on lamps of this type, are present and in great condition. Formerly in the renowned Paul Richards Collection, obtained privately before that collection went up for public sale. We have never seen another example. although we have seen a related squatter version, with not nearly the presence of this form. Substantial size, height 10 1/2".
