A striking and rare printed cotton flag, produced to commemorate Edward VIII's ascension to the throne in January 1936 (he abdicated later that same year). Edward's portrait is flanked by graphic examples of Great Britain's war machinery, symbolic of the country's power on land, sea and air. The flag has been mounted onto linen board and framed in hand-stained ash wood. There are some period faults, namely pin holes in each corner, and some minor water stains and rust marks.


  • H: 75cm (29.53in)
  • W: 102cm (40.16in)

Marc has been successfully dealing in decorative antiques for over 15 years, fuelled by his lifelong passion for artefacts of the past. His workshop, a converted Methodist Sunday School, is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cornwall.

He successfully mixes styles and periods to create his own unique collection of ‘delightful objects’. Good design, craftsmanship, colour and an age-worn patina all play their part in his discerning approach to buying. His selection of stock is often based on its aesthetic appeal rather than its age, and he loves to find items that have a story to tell.

Visits to Marc’s workshop and stores can be arranged by appointment.
