Antique 21 Star Flag Hand Sewn Silk / Bible Flag
A most incredible and delightful rare flag. Made of silk and sewn together by hand with the most incredible perfect stitching. Each delicate star is comprised of four small white American Indian trade beads. These beads are found on all Indian bead work that you have seen. It has a sleeve hoist. Flags similar to this construction and size are usually called Bible Flags. As they were kept in the family Bible. Often a mother would make a Bible flag and present it to her son if he was going off to war to keep in his bible.
Overall the workmanship on this flag makes it a one of a kind and a real work of art. A prized piece for any collector. The 21st State was added in 1818, Illinois. James Monroe was President (1817-1825)
