    Cleveland & Thurman: Fantastic, Never Before Seen, Large 1888 Jugate Campaign Flag. The giant portraits relate most closely to a pair of designs made for the 1876 candidates, but we have never seen a political flag which compares with this bold format. The cloth is loose weave cotton, and the flag is mounted on its original stick, measuring 35" x 21.5". Colors are very strong, and overall condition is excellent. Two minor holes to the right of Thurmond's beard detract minimally. Minor separation at the bottom, where the flag is attached to the stick. As is so often the case, there is a little staining and soiling, in this case very light, along the right edge, which was left exposed when the flag was stored, rolled around the stick. As a general rule, Cleveland textiles are not among the most highly valued among political candidates of this era. However in this case, the uniqueness and dramatic display presence of this should make it hotly contested indeed.
