I recently received this massive peice of history as a gift. It is a wonderful banner and am trying to figure out a bit more about it. It's about 4 feet across and possibly 30 pounds including the frame. The eye of the eagle seems to be a marble which I found VERY interesting! The ship looks as if it could be the USS Colorado, as I have seem almost identical pieces that have that ship's name embroidered above the image of the ship. It's in great condition and doesn't look to be as faded as other banners from 1907. I am curious if anyone has any more information about this peice.
Thank you so much in advance! :)
