Description


Very rare and impressive hand-made official presidential flag, of the most detailed handcrafted quality, used in the White House during Richard Nixon’s presidential administration. Beautiful double-sided (two completely identical and exquisite hand-sewn panels were affixed back-to-back) rayon flag measures 4´ x 3, with silver and gold metallic fringe around the edges, and an incredibly detailed presidential seal hand-embroidered on both sides. Inside sleeve of the flag bears a typed label which reads, “Flag Individual President / Rayon w/fringe 3´ x 4´ / Contract No. 6109-72 / 8345-570-9887 / DPSC Dir of Mfg,” and labeled in blue ink, “11/18/72,” indicating the flag was delivered to the White House on November 18, 1972. As required, there are soft leather loops hidden within the sleeves and either end. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a flag stand and cords with tassels for display. This flag was in service at the White House for presidents Nixon, Ford, Carter, and Reagan, before being acquired as part of the Raleigh DeGeer Amyx Collection in 1985. Comes from a longtime White House staffer with ties to the NSC. A nearly impossible to acquire White House artifact—seldom is such an exceptional example of presidential history offered.
