Merchant Marine Insignia Display
Hand done and beautifully executed display of shipping companies’ logos and insignias, on a model flag and model engine stack for each company. Certainly done as early as the 1930s, as there are some insignias present that would not have existed beyond that date, i.e. Nazi Swastika. Each flag and smokestack is made of tin and hand painted and hand calligraphy as well. An amazingly aesthetic display. Mounted in period frame.
