French antique church banner made of cotton, paint and painted adhesive paper. From a convent in the south of France.
This one is for Notre Dame de Consolation or Our Lady of Consolation.

The top of the banner is a solid wooden bar sewn into the fabric.
A string to hang it has been attached at the top. A loop on one side (the second one is missing)
Pencil marks still visible on the medallion. They would have been used for the initial sketch.

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 or holes, commensurate with age and use are to be expected:
- the paper is peeling or is damaged in places
- the loop that are on most banners at the top has made holes or damages when the banner was rolled and stored.
- staining
- small holes and wear
- asymetrical / irregular design

First half of the 20th Century.

Width: 33.4 inches or 85 cm
Total length: 96.9 inches / 246 cm
