Regular priceSale price
Here we have a rare 497th Bomb Group textile linen sheet made by the ideal Textile Company commemorating their service in World War 2. When you want to grab them with a emblematic logo, no one does it like the 497th. Peace on Earth....and a woman at the top. The of the repeating logo and the sketched notes really jumps out at you. And the colors are still louder than a bomb.
Here is some info about the 497th courtesy of Wikipedia:
The 497th Bombardment Group was a group of the United States Army Air Forces. The unit was inactivated on 31 March 1946. The unit was part of the United States Army Air Forces and Twentieth Air Force during World War II. The 497th BG engaged in very heavy (B-29 Superfortress) bombardment operations against Japan. Its aircraft were identified by a "A" and a square painted on the tail. Its history and lineage are carried on by the present 497th Air Expeditionary Group.
The linen comes out of an old Wisconsin estate where the gent was using this linen to keep out the sun in his garage. I believe the linen was produced in the 1960s or 1970s.
The rare WW2 memorial linen measures about 75" tall by 55" wide. There edges are fraying a bit. There is a also small stain to the bottom right of the center image (see pics). Overall, she hits you from all angles, no matter the position. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.

Textiles to another level. Take about a wall covering. Wicked!
