Antique 39 Star Flag

Antique 39 Star Flag. Very rare antique flag that has hand painted stars. Only the earliest of flags were hand painted. They also used hand painted flags during the Civil War. Another rare trait of this beautiful flag is that it has a very rare star arrangement, as the stars are placed in the canton in a scattered pattern. The maker was trying to follow the Founding Fathers exact directions in making a flag as its spelled out in the Constitution that the stars be arranged as a “New Constellation” (in the night sky) That is what the maker of this flag is trying to do. Made of home spun cotton. Circa 1889-1890. Museum framing with UV acrylic. Large flag 80″ wide.
White glove shipping.
