American 42 Star Flag, circa 1890


Antique 42 Star American flag commemorating Washington Statehood, circa 1890. This was never an official U.S. Flag by Act of Congress, but rather a "bootleg" made for people in Washington proud of their new statehood. Great size, and condition, and the irregular stars are set in a wavy pattern. The apparent warp to the flag is no doubt original to the piece, and goes along with the wavy effect. Conservation mounted in a curly maple frame.
