Textile conservation, historic and antique banners and flags, preservation and repair

The banners are remarkably complete for their age. Creasing exists overall, however, their is very little loss to the hand-painted odds and images. Conservation of these banners included the design of a system for seamless transfer from storage to display.

These 2-sided banners each received a custom designed mount which allowed either side of the banner to be viewed as well full archival storage of the banners when not on display. Rare Earth magnets were used in the exhibit of the banners.
