    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Rare and Lovely Large Circa 1864-65 Yard Goods Label. Oval albumen photo affixed in center. Attached to the back of the frame is a photocopy of a similar example picturing Sherman. We suspect that these were originally issued as patriotic items, but upon Lincoln's death a heavy block border was added to the star configuration around his portrait in mourning. Beautiful condition with great display appeal. We have never seen another. 10" x 3.5". Nicely custom framed to 14" x 8.5".
