GREETINGS from The FLYING TIGER Antiques & Vintage Historical Artifacts!!!
As of today, Thursday, 23 March, Kanae is IN THE OFFICE,
I will be joining her shortly, by Monday 27 March.
What does that mean? Well, there MAY be a delay in shipping,
especially of Military Artifacts, and some Police & Fire Badges
As many of those pieces on the site were with me on the trip to Louisville & Baltimore!
So, hang tight for a few more days, as there may be a delay until 3/27 to get your order shipped if the ordered artifact is with me on the road!!
Meanwhile, Kanae will be LISTING NEW ARTIFACTS DAILY,
And shipping what she can, through the foreseeable future!
Thank you for visiting. We hope you will find some vintage artifacts here to add to your collection!!
If funding your order from a Bank that offers ZELLE, ASK ABOUT OUR ZELLE DISCOUNT! Also applies to check and money order payments!
Happy Collecting, Ron & Kanae
This is a 1940s stewardess badge for Trans-Canada Airlines, a company dating from 1936 that in 1965 became Air Canada. Made by Scully of Montreal, the badge has a slot for a name plate at the top and beneath has a Deco wing design with a blue, rather than the typical red, maple leaf.
Approximately 1-3/16" in height and 2-13/16" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Gold-plated brass with enamel.
Two single screw posts with one disc backing (one of the posts is shorter than the other - it looks to have snapped off at some time but screw still fastens).
SCULLY LTD. MONTREAL.
This is from an airlines collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MAEL96 LAGEX5/11 SAFJX06/20
7+ (Very Fine+): The badge shows some light abrasions and all enamel is intact, and the tip of one of the posts is missing (but screw still fastens).
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
