Scarce "William Henry Harrison" Portrait Glass Cup Plate
(1840) Presidential Campaign, Decorative "William Henry Harrison" Portrait, Sandwich Glass, Clear Glass Cup Plate, Choice Extremely Fine.
Authentic original c. 1840 William Henry Harrison decorative Cup Plate. Sandwich (Mass.) Glass. Has nice central portrait of Harrison with legend: "Maj. Gen. W. H. Harrison Born Feb. 1773". Very patriotic design measures 3.5" in diameter. Has a trivial chip on the rim on left hand side. A very nice, scarce patriotic piece for display.
The United States Presidential election of 1840 was the 14th Presidential election, held from Friday, October 30, to Wednesday, December 2, 1840. It saw President Martin Van Buren fight for re-election during a time of great economic depression against a Whig Party unified for the first time behind a single candidate: War Hero, William Henry Harrison. Under these circumstances, the Whigs easily defeated Van Buren.
