Very rare and impressive hand-made official vice presidential flag used during George Bush’s term as vice president, and subsequently by Vice President Dan Quayle throughout his full term, during which this exquisite example stood just outside of their office in the elegantly wood paneled reception room. Beautiful double-sided (two completely identical and exquisite hand-sewn panels were affixed back-to-back) rayon flag measures 66″ x 52″, with deep blue fringe around the edges, and an incredibly detailed official vice presidential seal hand-embroidered on both sides. Inside sleeve of the flag bears a typed label which reads, “Flag Individual Vice President / Rayon w/fringe 4´4 x 5´6 / Contract No. 9047-87 / 8345-00-247-0440 / Defense Personnel Support Center,” and labeled in blue ink, “Vice President 10/19/88,” indicating the flag was delivered on October 19, 1988. 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 stunning flag comes from a retired NSC White House staffer. There are believed to be no more than six flags of this size and quality manufactured for any incumbent VP, nor does such an iconic example ever become available for sale. An impressive display piece, both in its size and extraordinary hand-craftsmanship, issued to the vice president’s office only several months before Bush assumed the presidency, and subsequently used by Vice President Dan Quayle throughout his four-year term.
