Antique Original Marine Corps Silk And Gold Metal Embroidered Emblem 1890’s.
What a Beautiful piece of history. I lucked into 4 of these. 2 smaller ones and 2 of these larger ones measuring 13.75” wide and 10.25”. I’ve had these for awhile but finally did the research. I contacted Heritage sales who deals with Militaria items. They seem to think that the handworks is probably Japanese and from the late 19th century or early 20th century. This emblem matches the 1890’s version of the Marine Corps Emblem.
I tried to capture as much as the details as I could but if more pictures are needed please let me know and I will accommodate.
The handwork is amazing and the silk and gold metal thread is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. This would be beautiful framed and prominently displayed in a home of a lover of all things Marine Corps. I will be listing the other ones in the near future.
There is no damage or missing thread. Amazing condition.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I do not know the history of these but do know they came from a large estate with a lot of military items. Thanks so much for checking this out.
