    Description

    A Copy of the Betsy Ross Flag Made by Her Granddaughter This is a remarkable miniature flag, a copy of the 'Betsy Ross' design that was actually made by her granddaughter Rachel Albright in 1905. Albright was 92 years and 8 months old when she crafted this meticulously done fine silk red, white and blue classic. Measuring 12" on the fly and 7" at the hoist, the thirteen red and white stripes are hand-sewn as are the thirteen white five-pointed stars in the blue canton. At the hoist there is a handwritten inscription in ink as follows: "First flag made in 1777 by Betsy Ross. This copy of the original flag made in 1905 by Rachel Albright aged 92 yr. 8m. Granddaughter of Betsy Ross'." There is some loss at the top right of the canton, otherwise this one-of-a-kind flag made by the granddaughter of Betsy Ross is intact and vivid in color, making it an impressive presentation flag. It is framed in a wooden gilt 2" frame and is set down on a fine linen cloth covered by glass.

    Provenance: The Crow Art Partnership Collection (Dallas, Texas)
