Chicago-born artist Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900-31) was indeed a prodigy: having earned a scholarship with the Art Institute of Chicago at age 16 and her first major commission just three years later.

Although she succumbed to tuberculosis at age thirty, she did complete three major illustration projects: "Old French Fairy Tales" by the Comtesse de Segur (1920), Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Tanglewood Tales" (1921), and an extremely successful edition of "Arabian Nights" (1928). She passed away while completing a fourth assignment, "Myths and Legends" which sadly was never completed.

The images I have used for this banner are from Old French Fairy Tales and Tanglewood Tales.
These beautiful images have been hand printed onto linen fabric and then sewn into a dark brown bias tape. Each flag is two layers of fabric and I have stitched around the edge of each flag with red thread to prevent fraying. There is an image on both sides and when hung in a window it will glow!

I can make this with more flags if you would like it to be longer. It is $2.00 per additional flag - just contact me and I will make a custom listing for you.

+ banner has nine flags
+ each flag measures 4 " by 5.25"
+ sewn to dark brown bias tape
+ pearl snap closures at each end to make a large loop for easy hanging
+ distance from end to end with the snaps done up to form loops is 5 feet.
+ image is on both sides so it can be hung across a room or in a window

*This garland is meant for decorative purposes and is not a toy. Please hang out of reach of small children.
