Rare Early Hand Sewn 13 Star American Flag Banner
Rare Early Hand Sewn 13 Star American Flag Banner. Exceedingly rare authentic antique American Flag banner. Made of heavy weight silk/satin with 13 individual hand sewn stripes of red and white silk. The blue canton has 13 gold bullion type hand made hand sewn stars (two are missing) The bottom scalloped edge has gold fringe which is hand sewn on. The banner is aged and slightly faded to give off a beautiful gold glow to it. I purchased this over 15 years ago from a antique dealer who bought out the contents of a small Civil war museum in El Paso Texas in the 1950’s . It was in the original frame with bubble glass. Usually pieces like this are made for a major event like the Inauguration of a President. very impressive banner. Civil War or earlier.
For the serious collector.
Frame size 31×40 Museum framing with UV acrylic.
