  • Full Set of Vintage Maritime Signalling Flags in Original Heavy Canvas Roll Circa 1900

    Rare to find, a full set of Maritime Signalling Flags in their original holder – a heavy canvas roll with rope fastening. These are fantastically sized flags, measuring 82cm x 61cm for the rectangles and 140cm x 41cm for the triangles. The fabric is panel stitched and appliqued, with heavy cotton tape and cord fastenings.

     

    They have been well used and their condition displays this. A few pieces have heavy wear (as shown) however we have not restored them as we feel this could detract from their history and character.

     

    Found in a boatshed in the North of England and marked with the place name SPUR, these would make an enviable and impressive large-scale bunting or form a fantastic backdrop for styling or interior decoration.
