1840 Harrison & Tyler Unlisted Presidential Campaign Silk Ribbon with Gold Braid and Two Vignettes

Click an Image to Enlarge It
September 11, 1840-Dated, Unlisted William Henry Harrison Presidential Campaign Silk Ribbon, with Gold Braid and Two Vignettes, Fine.

Unlisted in Sullivan/Fischer’s reference book, “American Political Ribbons and Ribbon Badges: 1825-1981” but with two different historical vignettes, similar to those found on WHH-51. This Silk Ribbon is printed in black on off-white Silk, titled, “Harrison & Tyler Convention at Brandywine Battle Ground Held September 11, 1840.” The top vignette shows an active equestrian General General Harrison, likely at the 1811 Battle of Tippecanoe in Indiana with his upraised sword in hand directing his troops; the lower vignette shows the Harrison greeting a veteran in front of his iconic Log cabin. This Presidential Campaign Silk Ribbon measures 5.75” x 2.75” and it was stitched to a piece of black cloth measuring 6.5” x 3.25” then bejeweled with golden metallic thread braid to create a vivid border and metallic braid fringes decorating the bottom streaming about 1.25” long. A few minor holes are visible at upper left but they touch only above the horse’s head. So many aspects of this historic Ribbon make it a standout. Being unlisted and unknown in Sullivan-Fischer makes it even more valuable.
