    Description

    James G. Blaine: Seldom-Offered Silk Portrait Flag in Very Fine Condition. Threads #515, silk, 23.5" x 15.5", Portrait of the 1884 Republican in the 38-star canton, inscribed "For President James G. Blaine". Some light stains along the 2nd and 3rd vertical folds, minor aging along the right side, four "light" areas along the top edge of the canton; overall, a very fine example with vibrant colors. Very bright. These silk flags are notoriously prone to separations and fading. Despite the minor technical issues, this is a premier example, the product of two upgrades in the course of the Frent's collecting. We are offering the Cleveland mate elsewhere in this auction.
