    William Henry Harrison: Elegant Wood Chest with Colorful Reverse-on Glass Portrait on Inside of Lid. The vivid colors and design elements make this one of the most striking of early political display items. Harrison's name and a ring of stars appear in gold letters above his military portrait, with "The Hero of Tippecanoe" below. We have seen two other similar versions over the years, but do not recall their having the log cabin and cider barrels in the upper corners, as appears on this version. In any case, this is by far the finest condition of these we have seen. The exterior of the box is excellent and the inside virtually mint! The glass panel is 8" x 5" and the box measures 11.5" x 7.5" x 3.5".
