BIG ANTIQUE c. 1920 VINTAGE WOOL FELT PENNANTS QUILT/ BANNER - STITCHED LETTERS Click images to enlarge Description                 ------ Madras & Moleskin Vintage Emporium ------      Here for sale is a fabulous antique banner (or wall hanging/ quilt), cleverly stitched c.1920 from 16 different felt souvenir pennants. This rare vintage textile comes fresh from an outstanding upstate New York estate collection. Each pennant forming this banner features individually stitched, 100% wool felt letters. In the center, as a focal point, is the state seal of New York. (Unlike the pennants, the seal is printed, not stitched). The banner measures a generous 55" in diameter. It is in good to very good condition for its age, with colors still impressively rich and bright throughout. The only flaws are three tiny old pin or moth holes, a missing "I" to the Michigan pennant, and a hint of very mild fading to a couple of others (namely the bright pink and light blue pennants). Please note that the banner does not lie entirely flat- the central seal area is slightly raised.      The banner has been professionally dry cleaned in an eco-safe manner & is all ready for use or display. This fascinating antique pennant banner will make an outstanding addition to any fine collection! ** Scroll to the bottom of this page (when viewing on a PC or tablet) or tap on main photo (on a smartphone) to see many additional close-up photo                                       ----------------------------- (* Hello, collectors!

High bidder is to pay full cost of item via Paypal. ADDITIONALLY: I am a professional, full-time seller; I take my online sales very seriously, always posting multiple clear photos of every item, as well as stating its exact measurements and mentioning any flaws VERY clearly in the item description. I will not cancel any transaction due to the high bidder's failure to thoroughly read the listing or examine the photos before placing a bid. To do so could jeopardize my eBay seller status.

International bidders- I am required to declare each item's full cost on customs declaration forms.

I double-check each and every measurement -especially when dealing with vintage clothing or artwork- and post only photos in which the colors appear just as they do in real life. Rest assured all items are guaranteed to be exactly as I have pictured and described them. Vintage clothing sizes often differ markedly from contemporary clothing sizes. (i.e., a 1930s "Large" may be closer to a modern Small or Medium. To that end, I require that bidders purchasing vintage clothing must accurately know their correct clothing measurements in standard US measurement sizes. At my discretion, a refund in full or part may be granted if I have inadvertently made a highly significant error in the item description and/ or photos. In such circumstances, refunds will be considered only for buyers with more than 10 visibly excellent feedback ratings- following the safe return of said item. Buyers with "Private" feedback must make their feedback ratings visible before any manner of refund is granted. Please realize I do not provide any refunds on items the buyer has used or worn, nor any returns to due to belated buyer's remorse or the high bidder's failure to properly read the full item description.
