Antique Car Ornament, Annin Patriotic US Car Ornament, Parade Car Ornament, Complete with all 5 Original 48 Star Flags, 1920s
A unique find, this is an antique Annin Car Ornament, the US Shield with the attachment apparatus, and the original 5 flags with 48 stars that were inserted into the flag holders that are part of the ornament.
I scoured the internet and was able to find a photo of this piece (complete with the 5 flags) mounted on a 1920s Ford. I have photographed this piece on this picture to give you an idea of the uniqueness and age of this piece. Almost 100 years, I date it just after World War I. Came from an Estate Sale in my hometown.
I cleaned it up a bit, and it looks to me that 2 of the original screws were replaced with brass screws. The flags, amazingly, do not have any tears or rips, some small stains, generally discolored from age. To find this with the 5 flags, well, is just crazy good.
If you are an antique car buff, or a collector of patriotic memorabilia, you will love this set.
Shield measures 3 inches by 2 1/2 inches. The original mounting bracket measures 4 1/2 inches by 2 inches. The flags measure 5 3/4 inches by 4 inches. The flag poles measure 10 1/2 inches long.

If you are purchasing a treasure for a gift and would like to have it shipped directly to the recipient, no worries about receipts or invoices. I never put a paper copy in with my packaging. You will have a copy on your computer. Your gift recipient (if you choose to have it shipped directly to them) will not see any of the paperwork.

Just a mention that items from my shop are vintage items, not new items. All have been previously owned and as with most vintage items, they are gently used and may show signs of use and wear. I try my best to give an accurate description. I will note in the item description any sign of wear that would affect the functionality or overall appeal of the item.
