This rare 32-star flag historical artifact was conceived to celebrate. The admission of Minnesota (May 11, 1858) to the United States. Lag became the Official United States flag on July 4th, 1858 and was to last for just one year. The woven silk embroidery is finely crafted and detailed. The piece is composed of a mighty American Eagle holding an olive branch and arrows descending upon the American seal with a pair of American flags on either side, all embroidered with a total of 32 stars. The embroidery is overlaid on a champagne gold silk ground. The fine embroidery and precise craftsmanship shows the artist’s patriotism and talent. The composition is framed in an streamlined giltwood period frame with beaded border and black matting. Embroidery presents well and is in very good antique condition, with minor display wear and patina commensurate with age. There is very minor age-related fading and scattered fraying to embroidery. Gilt frame has minor wear/scuffing and loss to gilding commensurate with age. All as one would expect from a piece of this age.
