    Andrew Jackson: Rare Farewell Address on Silk. Printing speeches on silk was popular in the period 1800-1840, with this being a copy of "Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address" to the American people. What makes this piece special is that it is printed in gold ink on teal colored silk and has Jackson's portrait at the top center. It was printed in the spring of 1837 by an unknown printer, and is not listed in Threads of history. It measures 17 1/4" 29 1/2" (sight) and 19 1/4" x 31 1/2" overall framed. It has an attractive decorative border and a large eagle at the top. The piece is in excellent condition and is quite striking in appearance. Selections from the Collection of Tom Charles Huston.
