100 Year Old Handmade Leather Flag36' X 60' framed one of a kind piece of Americana. Constructed in 1922 at the Robert's, Johnson & Rand shoe factory in St. Louis, MO.There it was kept in a little museum on site. Interesting side note: This shoe manufacturer also made shoes for a circus giant named Robert Wadlow and had a pair of size 24 shoes on display. My father, now 90, was in the shoe business as was his father and grandfather. His father took him to St. Louis during early WWll to try to get more shoes to sell as leather was rationed and business was good. That is when my father saw the Flag and fell in love with it as a boy. A friend of the family in the business was able to obtain the Flag and give it to my father.It has been in my family ever since.The Flag has only 48 stars (proper for that time) and made completely of leather. It is not in pristine condition as it has been around for a very long time. What a great antique to have!
