    Pair of George Washington 1876 Centennial Jacquard Ribbons Here is a pair of wonderful George Washington woven ribbons commemorating him as the Father of our Country, made during the Centennial celebration in 1876. The smaller ribbon is 2.5" x 9" in overall length (with tassel). It has a portrait of Washington among various patriotic designs and proclaims him "The Father of His Country," very colorful and impressive in appearance. The large ribbon has incredible detail as it lists the 13 original colonies beneath his portrait and a quote above. It states its purpose as "In Commemoration of the Centennial of American Independence." Manufactured by B. B. Tilt & Son, 2" x 11.5" in size, no tassel present. Conditions are excellent save for the very light glue staining to be expected at top and bottom where fabric was folded back.
