Seneca War Chief "Red Jacket" Wearing His 1792 Oval George Washington Silver Indian Peace Medal

1838-Dated, "Red Jacket. Seneca Chief," Hand-Colored Stone Print by C.G. Childs., Philadelphia, published by S.F. Bradford, after the original painting by C. B. King, Extremely Fine.

This original Hand-Colored Print dates from 1838, after the original painting by C. B. King, which features the portrait of the famed Seneca Chief, Red Jacket. This is the scarce stone print by C.G. Childs., Philadelphia, published by S.F. Bradford, 118 Chestnut Street, from Childs & Inman's Press. In this historic print Red Jacket is wearing a huge Silver Indian Peace Medal that was hand engraved in 1792 by Philadelphia silversmith Joseph Richardson, Jr. and then presented to Red Jacket on behalf of then President George Washington.

This is one of the most famous images of any major Indian Chief of the era, measuring 19.75" x 13.25" and placed within a display mat. Red Jacket was something of a celebrity when he arrived in Washington in 1827 to plead for better treatment of his people. His image print was part of the collection that McKinney and Hall assembled by an act of Congress, and the collection remains the finest example of contemporary anthropology from that era. A gorgeous example of this most historic Native American print, excellent for display.
