A prodigious array of political paraphernalia

The final decades of the 19th century produced a prodigious array of political paraphernalia, and despite being in the business over 20 years, we are still discovering items we never knew existed. Case in point, the pair of acid-etched glass flasks from the 1892 campaign, one for Harrison and one for Cleveland, that turned up locally a few months back. Clearly, these were collected during the campaign, and have been together since. Two of the rarest pieces of political glass we've had the privilege to handle.

We have a nice assortment of badges, from the Lincoln-McClellan race through McKinley. Also a goodly number of rare early convention badges; a tough bandanna; a super rare piece of sheet music. And rounding it out, some fun and inexpensive badges boosting the Span-Am War effort.

Victor will have tables at the Arizona Historical and Pop Culture Collectibles Show, held at Mountain View Lutheran Church in Phoenix, on Saturday, May 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hope to see you there!
