For you who collect political memorabilia here is something quite special!
Rarely found, this antique glass campaign mug shows the portrait of William Jennings Bryan on the front end opposite the handle, with the words "The People's Money" over the portrait, and "Wm. J. Bryan" underneath. The significance of the slogan is the connection to his "Cross of Gold" speech at the 1896 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, where he spoke out against the moneyed classes for supporting the gold standard; he was fighting for the production of silver for the masses. So here is a real piece of American history for the serious collector. The mug measures 3 1/4" in diameter and 3 1/2" in height, and is in great condition.
