    Description

    WWI French Escadrille 3 Fuselage Fabric With the Squadron's Stork Insignia.
    Framed to an overall size of 34 x 21-inches. The squadron's down-swept wing stork is hand-painted on a section of two-color camouflage varnished linen. The stork surmounts a red, white and blue band. The section of fabric would appear to have come from the left side fuselage of a SPAD or Nieuport Scout. Perhaps the squadron's most famous pilot was Georges Guynemer, who attained 54 victories before himself falling victim to German guns.

    Condition: Very good. Exhibits honest wear from use and storage. The fabric appears to be permanently mounted to the backing board and has not been examined out the frame.
