    Description

    William Henry Harrison: Unique Ornate Portrait Badge. A clearly recognizable glazed ceramic medallion of Harrison has been set into this elaborate brass frame. No pin on reverse, but indications of where one was originally attached. We have never encountered a piece of this nature before, but every indication is that it is correct and original. There is no doubt that the frame is original to the medallion; this is not a made up item. There is fine surface crazing on the glaze, but it is so even as not to be terribly distracting. Otherwise excellent condition. Diameter 45mm, height (including heavy brass fringe) 80mm. From the collection of U. I. "Chick" Harris.
