Item details

Vintage from the 1950s

This 48 star flag is in pretty good condition considering its age. It is still very sturdy and intact, but it is definitely discolored and tattered and wrinkled.

We're not sure of the material - it feels like cotton or linen, but could also be wool.

The stars are printed and the stripes are stitched together. The blue has faded slightly (in a pretty way) and the white stripes have turned to a light-tan color from age.

The fabric is fairly thin for the stripes - almost gauzy, and there are a few small holes here in there in the fabric.

But we love the well-used, authentic patina this flag has earned over the years. We think the distressed look is charming and authentic.

Size is approx 42 x 67 inches.
