1908 William Howard Taft / Sherman Tin Litho Presidential Campaign Serving Tray:
Very rare and beautiful, 1908 William Howard Taft / James Schoolcraft Sherman Jugate Lithographed Tin Serving Tray from the Presidential Election of that year.
This fantastic, round, lithograph on tin Serving Tray measures approx. 9 1/2" in diameter and features beautiful Chromolithograph portraits of the candidates in oval frames surrounded by American Flags with a view of the White House at the top and portraits of the 10 other Republican Candidates for President from the party's first nominee - Charles Fremont - through Theodore Roosevelt around the raised rim. Text on the rim at the bottom of the Tray reads "Grand Old Party / 1856 - 1908 / Standard Bearers".
This outstanding Tray is very attractive and the patriotic motif is similar to the smaller size, Tin Litho Campaign Tip Tray also issued during this campaign (we are also offering an example of this Tip Tray this week on ). It is signed by the lithographer - the Meek Company of Coshocton, Ohio and copyright by J. H. Shaw of Philadelphia.
This rare and beautiful, 1908 Taft / Sherman Tin Lithograph Serving Tray is in excellent condition - clean and crisp and beautiful. The chromolithography is brilliant and the surface is exceptionally well preserved with no significant surface wear, no scratches, no surface loss, no staining, no fading, no physical damage and no repairs of any kind. There are a few, small surface nicks to the rolled rim but otherwise the Tray is without flaw. Overall this rare and wonderful Lithograph on Tin Jugate Serving Tray is exceptionally well preserved and displays beautifully.
A beautiful and quite rare 1908 Taft / Sherman Jugate Serving Tray and a wonderful addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
