Product Description

•••••

ARTIFACT: This is an extremely rare and highly sought after Large Size American Volunteer Group Personal Banner. It was made for 2nd Squadron "Panda Bears" Group Communications Officer Robert J. "R.J." King. Many AVG members were either presented with, or ordered up one of these large banners as a souvenir of their service with the Chinese Air Force fighting against the Japanese in the early days of WWII. This type of banner is quite large and has quite a presence when displayed framed up on one's wall. Artifacts that belonged to members of the original Flying Tigers are extremely hard to acquire and rarely come up for sale. Often collectors lucky enough to acquire anything from the AVG will hold onto the pieces for their entire lifetime and families rarely let these artifacts go if they are lucky enough to still possess them. Don't miss this chance to own a true piece of WWII Aviation History.

VINTAGE: Circa early World War II (1942).

SIZE: Approximately 32" in height and 32" in width.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Silk and tinsel bullion embroidered on silk.

CONDITION: 6+ (Fine-Very Fine): The banner has some light water staining and a few small holes to hinder the condition here, but they do not detract too much from this museum-grade artifact.
