BICYCLE CLUB WALL BANNER -EMBROIDER BULLION! 1933
Beautiful 23x20" Dark satin blue & gold

Stock # 1057
Category: HJ, NAPOLA & SCHOOL, Clubs, Hobbies & Pastimes
Type:  NUREMBERG & MUNICH
Price: $595.00

Outstanding craftsmanship on this one-of-a-kind 23x20" plush dark blue banner-size Bicycle-Club Celebration cloth with large gold bullion letters and wheel spokes and colorfully hand-sewn eagle, bicycle tire and wreath.
This club was in Munich and small hamlets in the surrounding area.

Banner is one-sided, so it was probably use as a central display piece on the podium of the main club office, or above podium, displayed on the wall. Bicycling was popular before Hitler came to power and even more so once the Reich was established, remaining in the forefront of all aspects of German life through promotional efforts and celebration in sports, work transportation and leisure (Hence the "All Heil"). A very scarce and absolutely beautiful piece of history and artistic craftsmanship. NM
