    Description

    William Henry Harrison: Stunning, Possibly Unique Cut Glass Celery, Accompanied by Two Matching Tumblers. On one side is a log cabin, on another an American flag, and on a third a cider barrel marked "Hard Cider." Height 8.625". With it are two 3.375" tumblers with the same devices, closer together because of the smaller circumference. All three pieces are in pristine condition.

    We have seen perhaps several examples of the tumbler over the years, and they commanded low four-figure prices. However, this is the first example of the imposing large vessel we have encountered. No maker's mark, although the consignor believes they were probably made in Pittsburgh, an important glass-making center of that time. Together they clearly comprise a premier William H. Harrison display item. From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.

    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.
