This is an original vintage Washington DC pennant, from 1948. The felt pennant has a rich purple field, white script that reads "Washington D.C.", and a three-tone printed vignette of the Capitol building. The hoist end has a yellow felt border, red attachment ties, and a decorative arching yellow band that weaves through the purple field. The yellow band is printed in bright blue with the date "1948."
Pennant is in good condition. Felt intact and still rich with color. Yellow bands show some light staining, as expected with age and past use. Minimal fading and chipping of printed text and emblem present.
Pennant has been archivally mounted on acid-free black linen and is presented in a custom-built wooden shadowbox frame. Framed dimensions: 12.75"H x 23"W x 2"D.
