Patriotic World War II Era Welcome Home Banner | Circa 1939-1945

from 1,450.00

Frame Size (H x L): 39.5” x 29”
Banner Size (H x L): 29” x 18.5”

Offered is a swallowtail banner, dating to the World War II era.  The top of the banner is blue with a “WELCOME HOME” overprint, and the overprint is surrounded by thirteen white stars that represent the original thirteen states of the Union.  The bottom of the banner includes five alternating red-and-white stripes that are oriented vertically.  This banner would have been displayed in a window during World War II, similar to how service flags were displayed.  The verbiage of the overprint and the patriotic colors combine to make a great display piece, particularly for one’s home.    

Conservation Process: This banner was hand sewn to cotton fabric, and both were hand sewn to a mounting board.  To prevent the black dye in the cotton fabric from seeping into the banner, it was first washed in a standard wash and then in a dye setting wash.  The banner is positioned behind a UV resistant acrylic, and spaced apart therefrom using spacers. 

Frame: This offering is in our Large Reclaimed Wood Frame.  However, it can be reframed and would look great using any one of our Large Frames, which are shown in the final image.  The pricing associated with the different framing options may vary.  Reframing of an offering may delay shipment by up to two weeks.   

Condition Report: This banner has some minor stains and tears.  Two of its four grommets are missing.  Still, this banner displays wonderfully.   

Collectability Level: The Good – Perfect for Beginning Collectors and Gifts
Date of Origin: 1939-1945
