    Description

    William Henry Harrison: A Spectacular Large 1840 Silk Campaign Flag. For sheer visual impact, no political flag of that early era can compete with this stunning 28.5" x 29" beauty. The reds and blues are as deep and vivid as we have seen on a flag from this era, a perfect background for the large color image of Harrison. Condition overall is near-mint, with several utterly trivial tiny holes, none of which affect the devices and mentioned purely for accuracy. Silk flags are particularly prone to condition issues, and it would be difficult indeed to find a nicer one. It is vastly superior to the plate example in Collins' Threads of History (plate 134, page 102), and one of probably not more than a half dozen known examples of this design. We note an example sold by a Boston auction firm in August 2017, where it brought $35,670.
