Both lady liberty and Lincoln were found as part of a very large illustration that was preserved in a Victorian scrapbook. I loved the soft peach-red and aqua-blue colors so I paired Lady liberty with the oldest Cigar Flag (and one of the biggest too) in my collection. This one is fabric and is beautifully aged. Since Lady Liberty is looking up, I selected a handsome rendition of (not normally very photogenic) Lincoln to be front-and-center. Then letting my creativity take over, I collaged an antique silk badge-pin behind Mr. Lincoln and added a caption on the metal medallion. I loved finding more old Patriotic color combinations to finish this amazing decoration, to include rare patriotic cellophane gift-wrap ribbon, vintage Dresden paper star borders, Dresden paper Greek key border, antique silk aqua-blue ribbon, and red and blue metallic gift wrap ribbon (framing Cigar flag).
