    Description

    Rare 1856 Millard Fillmore Political Kerchief Listed by Collins as a "Know Nothing" item from the 1856 campaign, when former President Millard Fillmore ran as their candidate. The familiar central image, seen on ribbons and ballots of that year, depicts a variety of wholesome native-born Americans hoisting the American flag, and behind them the Temple of Liberty on top of a huge bedrock, emblazoned with "Constitution and Laws." Slightly evenly faded and minor subtle even age browning, but overall in very good shape, and damage-free. Political textiles of this era are rare and sought-after; if this item mentioned Fillmore by name, it would fetch $10,000 plus! Stamped in lower lefthand corner, "Boston Chemical Printing Company," and measuring 10.5" x 12.5".
