A Dartmouth College Banner Circa 1949. This banner is original to the era, and was owned by a Dartmouth College student. The banner measures 34″ x 17″. Green wool background with cream “Dartmouth” stitched to front center with cream trim stitched to edges. The manufacturer’s label is still intact to the reverse and reads: “Collegiate Manufacturing Company. Ames, Iowa. 100% Wool.”
The banner remains in remarkable condition for it’s age. There are small uniform pin holes in the top 2 corners from being hung. No significant markings or damage exist elsewhere. Normal aging exists, but overall, this item has been remarkably cared for.
A truly lovely original Ivy League banner from the 1940’s.
