    Description

    Henry Clay: Magnificent Paris Porcelain Cup with Hand Painted Portrait. A marvelous color portrait with gold leaf trim of the longtime Whig political leader who was a serious presidential possibility in every election from 1828 through 1848! No photo can possibly convey the presence of this cup or the similar one offered here picturing Daniel Webster. They are simply among the most beautiful early political pieces in existence! To our belief, this is the only known example. Choice condition with some wear on the gold leaf border around the inside of the top lip. Diameter 4". Height 3.875".
