Two panels are portraits of Grover Cleveland with the words "For President, Grover Cleveland" above and below the portrait. Two of the sides are portraits of his Vice-Presidential running mate Allen G. Thurman with the words "For Vice-Presidential, Allen G. Thurman." Two sections feature illustration of eagle standing atop a shield; two feature a blue star; and two feature different vignettes. Decorative designs at head and base of each panel.

The paper lantern would have been attached to a wire frame which would make it appear to be inflated. A candle holder would be attached to the frame at the bottom. A candle would be placed inside the lantern so that it would be illuminated for the night parade. Item #36714
