Offered is a wonderful “GOD BLESS AMERICA” banner, dating to the World War II era.  The center of the banner includes a white field and a patriotic, red-white-and-blue shield, and the bottom of the banner states “IT’S GREAT TO BE AN AMERICAN.”  The shield includes seven stars, the bottom left corner of the banner includes three stars, and the bottom right corner includes three additional stars.  In combination, the banner includes thirteen stars, symbolizing the original thirteen states of the Union.       

This banner would have been proudly displayed in a window during WWII, similar to how service flags were displayed.  The verbiage of the overprinting, the image, and the colors combine to make a fantastic piece.    

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.  The antique frame includes an outer walnut layer and an inner gold layer.  It dates to between 1860 and 1890.

Condition Report: This banner is in excellent condition and presents wonderfully.
