    Description

    Millard Fillmore: Great Folk Art Banner. 23" x 25" hand-painted banner on glazed cotton, inscribed "For President, Millard Fillmore. For Vice-President, Andrew. J, Donelson." The center has a standard image of the North American continent ("Our Country") floating in the heavenly ocean. There is chartreuse silk trim and fringe. The American flag is painted red and blue. The clouds are powder blue. The iron oxide and ox gall of the ink has caused some of the letters to begin to separate or peel (the "F" in "For", the "F" in "Fillmore" and the "RE" in Andrew"). Everything is still intact and the overall condition, though understandably delicate, remains excellent. The consignor's great-grandmother, Lydia Fuller Brinkerhoff, was a cousin to Mrs. Millard Fillmore and the banner has been in the same family since 1856.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
