Historical Americana has been buying and selling antique American Flags and Americana for over twenty years. I have personally seen and handled and purchased thousands of antique flags over the years. We frame them with museum conservation framing. Use all wood frames, UV acrylic, cotton rag mat components which means no acid or gas to harm any textile. We do all this and sell our flags at very reasonable prices. !
Please do not be intimated by dealers that have outrageous prices on their flags and say if any flags is sold for less than their (highly inflated prices) it can’t possibly be real. Really?…
If you want to pay more for the same flag please do.
I have more experience on antique flags than most museum curators and auction house appraisers who may see only a few flags each year and sometime make erroneous statements and opinions on flags because of lack of experience.
Genuine Authentic antique American Flag
We use modern museum framing technology to frame our antique flags. Our in house professional framers use only conservation framing methods used by museums. We only use acid free and gas free materials with all wood frames along with safe ultra clear UV acrylic.

I have consulted with numerous museums across the country including The National Archives, PBS, various film production companies for national TV Shows, major motion pictures, major collectors and large and small auction houses over the years in selling, loaning, describing, documenting and identifying various antique flags and antique textiles.
I have been interviewed for many national magazines and newspaper articles on antique flags and rare Americana.
