42 Stars

I know the Ace already beat out everyone in the biggest flag contest but this thing was too pretty not to hang up in the studio It measures just over 11' wide by 5' tall, the 42 star version of the flag dates to around 1890. I just found it crumpled in a ball at the back of a crawl space in a house built around 1910.

Hanging out

Commission Merchants

I was pretty excited when these turned up in a box of old letters, they seem to be a relative of figural cameos which are even more beautiful and completely impossible to find...
