    Henry Clay: "Berlin" Needlepoint Portrait. Impressive portrait of Henry Clay, modeled from the John Neagle painting of 1842. 14" x 17". Scarce size variant of the one listed in Threads of History No. 158. Design elements include a plow, anvil, cattle and billowing flag. Clay retired from the Senate in 1842, but re-entered politics in 1844, making his final run for the Presidency. Very fine condition with vibrant colors. Some nail holes on the blank border as expected for attachment to a wooden stretcher. We suggest the winner have it framed as intended for optimum appeal. Pictured on page 177 of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images, vol. 1.
