Antique Heraldic Banner
This Heraldic style banner is on a persimmon coloured silk. The design is both embroidered appliqué and trapunto embroidery. Part of the design is worked in metallic thread. There is a channel to hang it from the top. A woven metallic thread band approximately 3/4 inch wide, crosses the top of the hanging. Continuing down the sides, the band is half an inch wide. On the bottom, the half inch wide metallic band is supplemented with 3 inches of metallic fringe.
Condition: There is some discolouration on the front, and small stains on the back. There is minimal damage to the surface fabric at the top where the track would go through.
Size: Approximate size 40 inches wide by 48 1/2 inches long plus fringe.
