Item Details
Description
Grover Cleveland: Figural Pig Pen Wiper. Grover Cleveland was fat, but was he a pig? Well, the people who made this outrageous campaign novelty thought so! It is gilded lead, measures 4 1/2" long and 2 1/2" high. The pig's head is substituted by that of Cleveland and there are bristles along his back for use as a pen wipe. It is patented April 22, 1884 and retains a great deal of the original gilding. Isn't politics fun? From the Scott W. Dolson Collection.
