    Description

    Henry Clay: An Outstanding 1844 Campaign Cloth Bandana. 25.5" x 24", cotton, printed in brown on white, finished on four sides. The best political imagery we have ever seen on a printed campaign textile: "Harry of the West" below his portrait, "Tariff" and "Union" to either side. Corner vignettes include a coon, then the Whig's symbol, rolling a campaign ball, a factory & worker captioned "Tariff Home League", an eagle with riband reading "Union and Our Country" and a worker, farmer and billowing flag captioned "Agriculture and Commerce". Some scattered spotting, of little consequence. A very fine example, much better than those typically seen.
