Here’s a hint: it happened in April of 1789.
Fans of folk art and American history will be drooling over this fantastic silk sash! From the eagle to the bangles, everything is hand crafted; of course, what else would you expect for the inauguration of the very first President of the United States?!? That’s right, this silk sash was created to commemorate the inauguration of George Washington, which means this banner dates back to 1789! Can you believe how great of shape it’s in? That’s why appraiser Leigh Keno gives this a conservative value of $6,000, but says it could fetch much more at an auction. Get a closer look at this historic artifact in the following clip from Antiques Roadshow.
