1903 Flag

Frame Works was honored to frame this 1903 flag that was sewn by the Great Granddaughter of Betsy Ross.  The flag is owned by the Jean Espy Chapter NSDAR and they wanted to preserve it for future generations.  The silk flag and small silk ribbon, which has handwriting on it, was removed from its staff by Sharon Kundsen, Textile Conservator.  The flag, ribbon and staff were mounted on wool to stabilize them before the framing.  The Chapter selected Hudson II black scoop moulding and Hudson gold fillet from Larson Juhl for the frame.  Optium Museum acrylic by TruVue was used for the glazing.
