Lovely Vintage Handmade Cotton 48-Star American Flag - Classroom Size - Vibrant Colors

124.99

Beautiful vintage American 48-Star Flag, handmade with individually-sewn stripes and stars (NOT a printed piece of fabric!). This flag has been gently washed - colors are still vibrant and this flag, especially considering its age, is in wonderful condition!

I don't see a maker mark of any kind on the flag - all I can say is that it was made some time before 1959, when Alaska joined the Union. It is approximately 3.5' wide by 2.5' tall - likely out of a classroom or perhaps flown outside of someone's home. 

The only condition issues necessary to note is that the white fabric does show some minor yellowing with age. There are also two spots with slightly loose stitching - please see pic 6 for an example of this, as well as for stitching detail. 

Wonderful piece of American history, and a vibrant display item. 

I make good faith efforts to describe my items accurately. Please look at photos carefully and fully read the descriptions prior to purchase, and feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you might have, or if you would like to see any additional photos. 

I do my best to estimate shipping costs - if you would like to combine with other items or just arrange a free local pickup, just let me know before you purchase any items. If the difference between what I request for postage and what the actual cost is happens to be more than $2, I will refund the difference. If requesting international shipment, please contact me beforehand and I can estimate costs to your country.
