I'm not quite sure what type of banner to call this is or exactly what year it was made, but I just purchased this today.  Quite a bit of it appears to be either hand or machine embroidered, but in any case I thought it was too nice to pass up.

Very nice! I believe that's an earlier DI as well. Hopefully someone else can tell you more.

Could it be a Bugle Banner??

 

Here's the 27th Infantry Band in Hawaii with their Bugle Banners, so it was something that was seen in the United States Army.

This would be a 1930s item? Have to be right? Infantry Regimental Bands were disbanded during WWII, though it seems some made a comeback in the 50s however briefly.

RD12, it's hard to tell from your picture, but is yours hand embroidered like mine.  Also, any guess as to how many of these exist?  Thanks.

The one I posted is on display at the Fort Tuthill Museum in Flagstaff, AZ. It is not hand embroidery but chenille embroidery.

Thank you for your response rd12.  Probably safe to say, there's not a lot of these around, eh?

Probably only enough to outfit an honor guard/band/funeral detail or such.

If you liked that, here then is a whole topic on them, to include loads of photos of Shirley Temple as an honorary Wolfhound :).
