    Description

    All Silk Regulation Form Army Of Northern Virginia Battleflag C. 1870. 50" square, fabricated entirely of silk and we believe to be double sided although currently 'tacked' with old glue to a flat piece of cardboard. Although readily removed by a competent restorer. Virtually every detail of this flag would, in fact, indicate that it is period, with the exception of the stitching which is entirely machine executed, including a pattern of cross stitching on the edge of the stars. The thirteen five pointed stars are 5 3/4" point to point, the blue cross 7 1/4" wide and edged with a 1/2" border of white silk. The flag is edged with a 1 1/2" wide white silk border that is reinforced with stitching along the extreme edge. The flag is 98% intact and very sound, with the only damage/loss being along the 1 1/2" silk border which shows some tattering and the loss of some small chips.
    Despite its, in our opinion, unquestionably slightly post war vintage a beautiful Confederate flag and a viable center piece to a Confederate or general Civil War collection.
