Description

Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

I am listing a variety of nice estate-fresh Antique and Vintage Items this week.

      Here is a Rare Original PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION CENTENNIAL WOVEN SILK 36-STAR SOUVENIR FLAG with ORIGINAL WOODEN STAFF. Flag is approx. 4-1/2" x 2-3/4". Pole is 8-13/16" long. Flag has woven silk text on both sides. In the red stripes on one side is "PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION. AMERICA AND FRANCE. UNION FOR EVER. 1776 CENTENNIAL 1876. SOUVENIR". On the other side in the white stripes is "PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION. UNION FOR EVER. 1776 CENTENNIAL 1876. MEMENTO". I'm told there are only approximately 20 of these Centennial Souvenir Flags known to exist. Even harder to find with the original staff. I believe the orange-red enameled wood staff originally had a little brass finial on top which is missing. Found fresh in the contents of an old Walpole, MA estate several weeks ago, untouched for many years. The little flag has the incorrect number of stars for the year- not unusual for parade type flags.

     Condition: Flag has some bend-crease lines in it. Some fading to colors- moreso to red towards the end. Some small brown stain spots on both sides- spots maybe not quite as stark in person as some of my photos may show, but visible. A small tear and fray spot to silk on end (not a missing bite as my photos show as the little piece of torn silk is folded back there). Staff is straight and uncut (a couple of photos make staff look bent, but that's just the camera lens). Buying exactly as found in estate. Scarce 19thC Flag for your collection. INSURANCE INCLUDED in the shipping total.

    Look for my other nice Old Items I am listing as well. See listing for payment and shipping details. Feel free to email me with any questions. Thanks for looking!
