46-Star American Flag, Antique Printed on Silk, Early 20th Century

$3,850

About

This is an original 46-star American parade flag, printed on silk. Each star represents a state in the Union at the time. The official flag design would update every July 4th, to include any new states added to the Union in the past year. Oklahoma, the 46th state, entered the Union on November 16, 1907. As such, this 46–star flag was the official flag of the United States from July 4, 1908, until July 4, 1912. The flag has a dark blue canton with 46 white printed stars. The stars are configured in an 8/7/8/8/7/8 row configuration. The flag design is completed with 13 alternating red and white stripes, each stripe representing one of the original thirteen colonies. Condition: Flag is in good condition, considering age and past use. Scattered water stains, the largest measuring 4 1/2" x 4 3/4". Three folds are still present along edges. Flag is composed of printed silk. The flag measures 14 ½” H x 24 ¼” W. The flag is artfully presented archivally mounted in a custom-built wooden frame. Framed dimensions: 22" H x 30 1/4" W x 1 1/2" D.
