    Description

    Outstanding 1888 Benjamin Harrison Single-Portrait Bandana
    Described by Collins in Threads of History as "perhaps the best designed bandanna of the 19th century," (p.258). It's beauty has made it the most sought after and valued bandana for this candidate. It is also, to our knowledge the only bandana design of this era to feature a single portrait, most having jugate portraits or other devices. Condition is superb, virtually pristine. Notice that, while the right and left edges are finished, the top and bottom ones are not. This is typical for this particular bandana (see the example pictured in Threads). They were printed on a roll of fabric with finished outside edges, but apparently were never finished after being cut apart into individual bandanas. 25" x 21 1/2".
