I recently purchased a collection of a couple dozen small pennant banners at an estate sale. The informational card stated that they were from the 1950s to 1960s time frame. I can't prove those dates so am taking the sellers word for it.
This pennant is from the Tehran American School, also known as TAS. (I have two of this banner, both exactly alike, if you'd like both just change the quantity to 2). It is deep burgundy in color and is possibly made of a satin type material. The vertical side measures 9.75 inches long and has 2 double felt strips for tying it to a pole or display. The horizontal side measures 29.5 inches long. When held up to the light I can see two tiny pin holes where it was probably tacked to a wall.
While researching TAS, I found very informative information on the Wikipedia site. It states that the school was actually started in the very early 1900s but went through several name changes. If I followed the timeline correctly, it became the Tehran American School in the 1950s. The school closed for good in 1979, so the dates of 1950s to 1960s that I was given when I made the purchase should be correct.
Also, just for a bit of history, General Norman Schwarzkopf, famous for his role in the Gulf War, was a student in 1950 and 1951.
As stated, I have two of this particular banner, both exactly alike. (This listing is for a quantity of one). Both are in about the same condition which I believe to be very good. One (the one in my photo) has about a 3.5 inch length of fraying about in the center at the top. You should be able to see this in my photo. I see one small tear on each that measures about 3/8 ths of an inch. One (not the one in my photo) has a stain towards the pointed end, but the stain blends right in with the coloring of the banner and is almost un-noticeable.
The first purchase will receive the better of the two banners.
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Parcel from California. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $3.99.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
