48-Star American National Flag,
MPA Historic Americana Items
41 x 72", 48 crudely cut cotton stars are glued onto a cotton canton in a double medallion pattern surrounding a larger central star, all flanked by a bracket of four stars in three corners, only three in lower right. The reverse of the canton has presently only 31 similar stars in a different double medallion pattern that was purposefully designed, although some additional stars may have been lost over time. The canton was inserted into the seventh hand-sewn silk stripe of the remainder of an early to mid-19th century flag. The entire flag is vintage with its canton's material and glued stars being similar to late 19th century flags while noting its 48 stars.

Condition:  
Stripes are completely faded and oxidized as well as having pervasive fracturing with fabric loss, canton fair.
Est $600 - $800
