This beautifully aged, large British parade flag was found in a group of three flags in a home that was in the same family for 150 years. They kept everything! This flag was along side an antique American flag from 1908 -1912 and an antique Kingdom of Italy Army parade flag. Since the Union Jack has not changed much since it's creation in 1801, it is difficult to give it an exact date. Based on the flags it was with and the similar coloration and wear I would put this around WWI or 1914 - 1918.

This piece would look amazing framed on a wall. She deserves to be preserved and displayed.

INTERNATIONAL buyers - please see note under shipping details below to see how to save a ton on shipping if you intend to frame this.

CONDITION and DETAILS:

The flag was printed on cotton and the colors are beautifully aged - the white is now a tea color which is darker at the corners and edges. while the red and blue are faded yet bold. The condition issues are primarily the moth holes along the top and right side of the flag. This flag would best be preserved if framed. The pole appears to have been used as a banner hung as shown in photo 3. There are nails in either end of the solid wood pole. The flag is currently attached using straight pins - which is how it was found. I am guessing this was not how it was originally attached and that this is not the original pole.

APPROXIMATE MEASUREMENTS:

On the pole, the flag measures about 32" L x 13" H - there is probably another 1" wrapped around the pole.
The pole measures about: 35 1/2" L including the nails at either end x 1/2" diameter.

SHIPPING:

This piece will come shipped in a new shipping tube. Shipping estimate is based on furthest zip code in continental US from NJ. If you live closer shipping may be substantially less. Any estimate that exceeds the actual shipping cost by more than $3 will be promptly refunded via your method of payment.

INTERNATIONAL Shipping Note PLEASE READ: If you plan to frame this flag it may save you a great deal in shipping if you do not need the pole. The flag can then be carefully folded and fit under the weight and size limits for first class mail. This will reduce shipping substantially. Please convo me if you prefer this option.
