Item 6079 - Soviet Aviation Factory Banner Catalog 526 (Apr 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $200.00 +
Sold Price: $245.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Impressive Cold War-era Soviet banner from an airplane parts manufacturing plant, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, measuring 66″ x 51″, with 3.5″ yellow-gold fringe on three edges. The two-sided deep maroon velvet flag features an intricately embroidered profile of Lenin, made exceptionally lifelike by the use of many shades of fine thread. Golden embroidered Cyrillic text reads (translated): "Proletariat of all nations, unite!" and "In the name of Marxism-Leninism under the direction of the Communist Party—Forward, to the victory of Communism!" The reverse side is dedicated to the "Kievan Aviation Manufacturing Union, in the name of the 50-year anniversary of the October Revolution. To the victor in Socialist competition." In fine condition. Of the finest quality workmanship, this flag would have been awarded to the winner of a Socialist competition held by the aircraft parts factory. Such banners were a highly visible symbol of honor and pride for employees in state-run enterprises before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Due to the size and/or fragile nature of this item, special packing and shipping options will apply. Please call RR Auction for a quote.
