    Extremely Rare 1872 Greeley And Brown Glass Goblet
    This large, massive 6 1/2" glass features portraits of the two 1872 Democrat runningmates on either side, surrounded by small stars, with names below. A matching Grant/Wilson was also made, and is much more frequently encountered (probably because of Grant's much greater popularity as a war hero and incumbent President). We have owned perhaps as many as ten Grant-Wilson examples over our years in the business, but this is only the second Greeley/Brown (the other was sold privately for over $3000 in the 1990's to a leading collector, who had searched literally decades for a match to his Grant-Wilson). Greeley is a very tough and popular candidate in any category of campaign memorabilia. 3-D items are especially difficult; we are hard pressed to name any other types except for the relatively prevalent cast iron Greeley match holders. This beautiful goblet is in great condition, and presents a very special opportunity.

    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.
