Description:
CROCHETED EAGLE WITH LIBERTY BELL AND "GOD BLESS AMERICA" TEXT, 1876-1900:

This decorative lace textile, depicting an eagle perched upon the liberty bell, with the slogan "God Bless America" and a random scattering of 13 stars, was made sometime between the 1876 centennial of our nation's independence and the turn of the century (1900). It was made either by crocheting or tatting or a bobbin lace technique, all of which are quite similar in their basic appearance.

Mounting: The textile has been hand-stitched to 100% cotton, black in color, which was washed to reduce excess dye. And acid-free agent was added to the wash to further set the dye and the fabric was heat-treated for the same purpose. The mount was then placed in a substantial, contemporary, gilded frame. Spacers keep the textile away from the glass, which is u.v. protective.
