RARE...ca. 1909 LINCOLN GETTYSBURG SOUVENIR
- Source: eBay
According to page 231 of the reference book Collecting Lincoln by Stuart Schneider this is a circa 1909 ceramic gravy boat with Lincoln's Gettysburg Address pictured on both sides.It was manufactured by the Homer Laughlin China Co. for the firm's Historical America china set. This rare artifact crosses two collecting genres, Gettysburg and Lincolniana. This is the first of these I have owned in 30 years of collecting. I have scanned the page in the book and included it for your convenience. Overall the dish is in very good condition with only a very minor chip in the lip and one small chip on the base. It looks to be in better condition than the one in the book! Check out my other items ! Be sure to add me to your favorites list !
