    Description

    Henry Clay: Monumental 1844 Portrait Coattail Campaign Flag. 27 1/4" x 50 3/4" (The largest size) cotton flag with a portrait of the 1844 Whig candidate Henry Clay. The large portrait of Clay in the canton is surrounded by an unusual star design, and is absolutely stunning. In the field it reads "Clay Frelinghuysen Stockton & Houston". Thomas Stockton served as Governor of Delaware from 1845-1846 and John Houston was a U.S. Representative from Delaware from 1845-1851. The flag has been professionally mounted on acid free board with cotton thread at several areas along the edges. There has been some restoration at the right edge of the field with added fabric and has some light scattered age, but overall makes a fine presentation. The last example to appear on the market was in Jeffrey Evans June 23, 2018 sale, lot #1096, realizing $26,910.
