    Description

    George Washington: Early Commemorative Textile. 11" x 12" glazed cotton textile titled "The Effect of Principle Behold The Man". It shows a standing portrait of Washington, an American eagle, the British lion, ships at sea ("Commercial Union"), statistics and a lengthy quote from his Farewell Address in which he asks that "... the faults of incompetent abilities will be consigned to oblivion." Threads #38 where it is dated to 1806 and the Germantown [PA] Print Works. Finished on one side, four very small holes with even aging. A fine example.
