American Centennial Flag, 1876

Here is a beautiful close-up of a homemade silk Centennial flag with the dates 1776-1876 hand embroidered in silk thread. It's apparent from the flag's construction that the maker of the flag, A. Whipple of Albany, New York, was an expert seamstress


  1. Hello, Not sure if this website is still active, but I have a flag I am emailing you. Would love to learn more about. Printed with 43 stars and 12 stripes. thanks, I enjoyed your site!

  2. Hi
    I can't seem to find your telephone number, but I have a collection of 10 Rare and Collectable US Flags, 1870 to 1910 approximately. Can you please send me your email address and telephone number to discuss this interesting collection which I inherited from my Grandfather, a Navy Commander and Judge Advocate. All I seem to be able to locate is the guest book, and not the full contact information for your outfit.
    Thank you very much.
