11” by 14” unframed display with a piece of fabric from Jefferson Davis’s Presidential chair in the Confederate House of Representatives. Included are copied photos of President Davis and the Capitol building in Richmond. The fabric is covered with a 3X magnified cover to amplify for better viewing.

Gray suede matting with gold gilt accents. Certificate of authenticity and provenance documentation included. This is number 5 of 32 that were made from the original larger piece.

A period note accompanied the piece of fabric, stating that it was taken from Richmond by George D. Murray on April 3, 1865. Research done shows a George D. Murray of the 5th Connecticut Infantry. The original larger piece of fabric was part of a Connecticut estate, leading to the belief that it was this soldier who took the fabric as a souvenir.  [sl]
