Tennessee Centennial Cane
Item #: NEW-005821

Click image to enlarge
Please review the scans of this scarce cane. Evidently made of pot metal. Shaft is covered with strips of leather wrapped around it. Hole on either side of the head which may have been used to affix the shaft, though this head comes off. One of the holes is split all the way to the edge. I have seen and purchased two of these canes which were made either for the Tennessee Centennial or for the Expostion which was held a year later. Both had the same style on the stick. The leather is damaged or missing in several areas. I was told by an old-time dealer that these were made by prison convicts.

Art Album as Issued by the Nashville American
Item #: NEW-004621

Click image to enlarge
The art album is probably the most well known reference on the Tennessee Centennial Exposition which was held in Nashville in 1897. What many people are not aware of is that the publication was issued in segments through the Nashville American newspaper. Most of the interior is in good condition but the thin paper covers are quite chipped. The most serious condition problem is that the last 31 pages are missing. I sold a complete set recently for $400.

Rare Tn Centennial Expo Razor in Original Box
Item #: NEW-004083

Click image to enlarge
See scan. The blade reads Nashville Tennessee, Tennessee Centennial 1897 as it does the box. The maker H G Lipscomb Company is shown on the box and the folding razor. This proved to be such a popular souvenir that Lipscomb Hardware continued to make it for several years. This razor is from the exposition as documented by the box. Lipscomb used a plain box for the later razors. I have seen only one other razor offered for sale with the original box. There is spotting on the blade which I guess is light rusting. I have not tried to clean it up.

1897-Bandana-UCV Reunion-Tn Centennial Exposition
Item #: TEN-003471

Click image to enlarge
  This is a very rare souvenir of the Confederate Reunion which was held in Nashville Tennessee in 1897, in conjunction with the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. The bandana features Generals Stonewall Jackson, Beauregard, and Robert E Lee in the middle, surrounded by six different buildings from the exposition. It that isn't good enough it is also an advertisement for Frank & Morse, the Leading Clothiers, Jackson Building. It was this establishment who gave these bandanas out at the exposition. There are condition problems. The building at the top has been nearly obliterated. I don't know if it was a printing error or what. Also note the ink stain at the bottom, also possibly a printing error. Ignore the flash spot caused by the glass of the frame. The bandana measures about seventeen by seventeen inches
