    Description

    Davis & Bryan: Classic "Teapot Dome" Jugate Cardboard Sign. All campaign items picturing these two top candidates are scarce to rare, and this marvelous, double-sided die-cut sign has always been a collector favorite. "Hang me on the window or hang me on the wall" printed on the handle. Teapot Dome was a major scandal which clearly tarnished the Harding administration, but straight-laced Vice President Calvin Coolidge emerged from the controversy untouched, and despite the efforts of the Democrats and Progressives, this issue gained little traction in the 1924 presidential election. The cardboard used to make the sign is particularly brittle, and it is rare to find a complete example such as this where no pieces have broken off completely and had to be reattached. Several minor creases in the handle and corner of the spout. Overall one of the better examples one might hope to find. 13.5" x 10.25".
