    Description

    Miniature Silk Copy of the Betsy Ross 13 Star Flag Handcrafted by her Great Granddaughter, Circa 1900. 5 1/2" X 10 1/4" with 1/2" white silk hoist which is inscribed in ink script, doubtless in her hand, "Made by Sarah M. Wilson Great Granddaughter of Betsy Ross." All exquisitely hand stitched and in pristine condition.

    Rachel Albright, Ross's grand daughter and Sarah Wilson, her great grand daughter, hand fabricated a limited number of these flags in the East Wing of Independence Hall C. 1900 - 1910, often gifting them to benefactors of the American Flag House and Betsy Ross Memorial Association. Only a small percentage of the flags were actually signed, making them quite rare, with this being an exceptional example. Nicely mounted and framed C. 1950 and a wonderful piece of historic Americana, with direct lineal association to the first 'stars and stripes'.
