    James Garfield: Wonderful Parade Banner. The 1880 Republican candidate for President, James Garfield, appears on this 45" x 54" canvas or linen campaign banner. As with practically all 19th century banners, it is entirely hand-painted and truly qualifies as folk art. Gilt letterings reads "Independent Republican Club, Trenton, N.J." The background is a turquoise color which is quite striking. The original wooden dowel is attached at the top. A large sheet of thin red fabric has been applied to the back which extends beyond the edges, making a border. There is fringe at the bottom. There is some light, normal wear, but the banner is remarkably well-preserved and ready for display. If you own this, you don't need any other Garfield items!
