Wonderful display of two dried leaves pressed with period paper. At the bottom of the paper is a note in pencil, “leaves from the bouquet given by Mrs. Lincoln to the President upon his First Inauguration as President of the United States.” The plants are archivally matted framed with a Civil War period American Flag envelope with the inscription “Honor and defend this flag. Abraham Lincoln.” The frame measures 19 ½” by 14 ¼”. A rare piece of Abraham Lincoln memorabilia.
