He was caught in the intense battles between Progressives and conservatives, and got little credit for the achievements of his administration. Sounds like current politics but this describes the 1909 to 1913 term of Republican President William Howard Taft. Some things never change.
This 1908 campaign plate features jugate portraits of Taft and his vice-president James S. Sherman. They're surrounded by American flags and roses. The plate edge has gilt foliate and a gold edge that shows some wear.
The plate is marked VODREY CHINA. It measures 8 inches across. It shows age-related crazing and a fine hairline at 4 o'clock. The important center graphics are excellent. Overall, this Victorian political campaign plate is in very good condition. A fine old display piece for the political junkie.
