For some reason, I was cut off before I had finished giving the description of the item. I don't have a picture to send as I just don't know how to send one. Our daughter may be able to help me send a picture later when she comes. The Item is a plaster statue of Lincoln sitting and reading a large war map as Grant is pointing toward it, and in the background is Secretary of State Stanton cleaning his glasses. The front says COUNSEL OF WAR and on the back it reads PATENTED 1868 by ***** *****. It has never been painted and has never been retouched or broken, however it has some rough edges on the base and on Stanton's sleeve. It stands 24 inches high and is on an oak drum table, with a small reproduction Civil War cannon. It has been in the family approximately 96 years. ***** ***** lived from 1829-1904. They originally sold for $25.00 and 100,000 were created. Three plaster groups were made, Type A, B, and C. This is type B. I believe there is only 50 or so extant. One of these auctioned off for $15,000 but that was probably restored and over priced. This came from Erie, Pa and was purchased by my wife's grandmother. The people in Erie were moving and they were on their last day and Grandma purchased it for $15.00 and placed it on her little wagon and took it home.
