One Star, Falling Stripes

One Star, Falling Stripes is an American flag built from original barn-wood with untouched, vintage colors.

The stripes of the flag are strips of barn-wood which have been placed on the front of an old barn-door - obtained from a dairy-shed in Upstate New York. I have left all of the wood in its original form - unrestored for either condition or color. The barn-wood coloration - country-red and an off-cream white - make an honest, folksy, interpretation of Stars and Stripes. As a contrast, the blue Standard is steel sheet metal - painted an anodized metallic blue; the stars are cast-iron from a forge in Baltimore. The original barn-door handle is visible at the top of the door.

The flag stands at 55" in length and 35" inches in width. Against a plain wall - or a fence as in my images - it is both striking and deeply charming. It gets viewed from quite a distance. The piece can be indoor artwork too - it would just require the right space. It could be shown horizontally too.

Since all of the materials are vintage, salvage wood there may be some variation as I reproduce the piece

Shipping is on request - since the shape and weight are particular I would obtain the best price for you, including from private shippers like uShip. So I have stuck a guesstimate of $125 for shipping but would adjust this at time of sale. If you are within 100 miles of New York city I'll deliver it myself - for a very nominal charge
