French antique church banner made of cotton and painted or coloured adhesive paper. From a convent in the south of France.
This one has a large yellow cross in the centre (called cross of Jerusalem at the back).

The top of the banner is a solid wooden bar sewn into the fabric.
Three metal loops attached at the top and sides of the wooden bar.

I have many other banners from the same convent. Most of them will have an inscription in ink at the back to identify the motif and the partly erased stamp from the convent.

Imperfections, such as stains, creases or holes, commensurate with age and use are to be expected:
- All the paper decorations have been removed from the red border. Traces still visible.
- the paper is peeling or is damaged in places
- the loop that is on most banners at the top has made holes or damages when the banner was rolled and stored.
- staining
- small holes and wear. Small tears at the back visible in the last photograph.
- asymetrical / irregular design
- metallic paint has corroded
- creases and damage at the bottom because they were in stotage for a long time.

First half of the 20th Century.

Width: 32.28 inches or 82 cm
Total length: approx. 81.1 inches / 206 cm
