Greetings, I am new the the hobby of collecting old American flags and was delighted to come across this forum. I have read it nearly cover-to-cover and greatly appreciate the expertise that so many others have provided. I recently purchased a 37 star flag and had it mounted. A picture link is below. I did a lot of research before having it mounted to best preserve the flag while showing it off well. I am very proud of this first effort and it looks fantastic on my wall. I can't wait to get a few more. http://i780.photobucket.com/albums/yy90/TwoFishApparel/37StarFlag.jpg My question is about displaying flags that are larger than framable size. I have seen some great flags with beautiful star patterns but they are just too big to display in any practical frame. For these very large flags is it acceptable to fold the flag inside a frame so that only the blue canton and a bit of the striping shows? It really is the star pattern that I am most interested to see displayed and from an artistic position this would be acceptable. I have found lots of direction about hanging or triangle-folding flags, but none about showing flags in frames. I thought other collectors would be the very best place to ask for opinions. Thank you all.
