    Description

    Grover Cleveland: Unique Massive Glass Top Hat with His Portrait and "The Same Old Hat" Slogan. Not to be confused with smaller and more familiar varieties of Benjamin Harrison glass top hats. This one has an etched portrait of Cleveland in an oval with "For President" on one side and the slogan on the other. Certainly large enough and probably intended to be used as a vase. Recently obtained from a prominent New England dealer, this is the only example we have ever encountered. Unquestionably one of the top three-dimensional glass campaign items from this era, which yielded a rich variety of glass and china presidential and political novelties. Excellent condition. Height 4.25", diameter 6.625", although "in person" the piece has more presence than those dimensions would seem to suggest. Weight is upwards of two pounds.
