    Description

    McKinley & Roosevelt: A Spectacular Matched Pair of 1900 Campaign Banners. These colorful hand-painted banners certainly rank among the very best surviving political display pieces of that rich era. Their provenance is equally impressive: They were originally one of the "stars" in the collection of pioneering hobbyist Art Schofield, who served as APIC secretary during its first incarnation in the 1950s. They then passed to legendary collector Kenton Broyles, in whose custody they remained until sold by Heritage in our November 2007 Americana auction. In that sale they drew heavy bidding, selling for $13,145, against a catalog estimate of $5000-7000. Each banner is signed by artist B. J. Hasper, Belfast, New York. Each measures 35" x 50", with their scalloped edges a unique and attractive touch. Condition is excellent, with a hint of very minor water staining noted for accuracy. The most recent owner has had the banners professionally linen-backed at some expense in order to make them more stable for handling and display. This offering presents a rare second chance to acquire this wonderful pair!
