Rare 1850 Zachary Taylor Color "Mourning" Silk Ribbon
c. 1850 (ZACHARY TAYLOR), Color Silk Mourning Ribbon, Sullivan-Fischer ZT-M1, Extremely Fine.
Sullivan-Fischer ZT-M1. A most unusual and rare Zachary Taylor color mourning ribbon, 8" x 4" on white waxed cotton. From the top down, the ribbon shows a gilt eagle clutching a red, white and blue American flag, then a gilt portrait of Taylor with the legend "President Zachary Taylor Born in 1784, Died July 9th, 1850" in black ink surrounded by gilt scrollwork. Beneath the portrait is a black funerary urn, and at the bottom "THE LAST COHERENT WORDS OF THE VENERABLE PATRIOT, PRESIDENT ZACHARY TAYLOR - 'I die - I am expecting the summons - I am ready to meet death - I have endeavored to faithfully discharge my duty - I am sorry to leave my friends!". Some foxing at the margins and bottom otherwise a nice, presentable item. This is a very unusual mourning ribbon and perhaps the only one of the period, even of the campaign ribbons, that combines embossing, gilting, and the red, white, and blue American colors. This makes it an extremely desirable early ribbon and a prize for the advanced collector.
