    William Henry Harrison: Outstanding Silk Bandanna. Threads #124. 28" x 26 1/2" textile with portrait of "William Henry Harrison, Commander in Chief of the North Western Army, During the War of 1812, & C." along with the Capitol in the background. This against a red ground. The border contains repeating scenes of the Goddess of Liberty floating in the air, Harrison plowing his field, the log cabin and cider barrel, an eagle, Liberty Cap, farming implements and the slogan "Harrison & Reform". There is slight discoloration or aging along the extreme edges and running vertically through the portrait, as well as three small areas of loss in the red background. Given the rarity, graphics and impressive nature of this piece, these faults are easily overlooked. Overall, a very fine example which should elicit some strong bidding.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
