Rare Design Style Andrew Jackson Silk Mourning Ribbon
c. 1845, President Andrew Jackson Memorial Printed Portrait Silk Mourning Ribbon, Choice Very Fine.
This impressive Andrew Jackson Memorial Silk Ribbon measures about 3” x 6.25” with a heavy deep black border design around the central Portrait Image of President Jackson. This rare design is well centered and the silk is in excellent quality but for some slight soiling. The text above and below that reads: “The Union Must & shall be Preserved / Andrew Jackson / Born near Waxhaw Settlement South Carolina / March 15th 1767 / Died at the Hermitage June the 8th 1845”. A wonderful Andrew Jackson Memorial Silk Ribbon and theme.
