Description

Heavy brass flag poletop with a painted swastika within an oakleaf and acorn wreath.  No markings.  The specific organization that would use this top is not known, but perhaps a study of period photos may reveal a clue.  It is likely an early generic patriotic design that might have been used by any organization and is reminiscent of the pole top of the "Blood Flag". The pole cup shows wear to the finish. The reverse retains its original gilt finish while the obverse of the cup appears to have been touched up with a different gilt finish.  Wooden dowel is collector-added for display.
