Declaration of Independence, Rare Textile, Ca 1826
Intricately decorated cotton kerchief, 25.5 x 30 in., featuring the signed Declaration of Independence surrounded by three oval portraits of George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson; the twelve state seals; and scenes from the Revolutionary War. Framed, 31 x 36 in. Although similar to textiles illustrated in Collins' Threads of History, this example does not appear to be referenced.
Very good, some toning to the fabric.
