  • LZ-127 "Graf Zeppelin" Portfolio & Envelope Fabric - circa 1930's

    SKU: 21-ZEPP-362

     Wonderful portfolio, 13"x10", containing 15 plates with tipped-in black and white photos of the construction and interior design of this famous airship (only one photo is pictured to the left).  Even better is a folded 6"x6" piece of fabric from the Graf Zeppelin's envelope.  The cover is lightly sun-toned at the bottom edge but otherwise the portfolio is very good.  While no date is present, I suspect this was produced very early in the life of the LZ-127 because only one photo shows the airship in flight.

  • B-17 Crew Artifact - circa 1945

    SKU: 21-UN-17

     Large vintage (irregular 12"W x 8"H) hand-painted "patch" on canvas of B-17 Umbriago, showing the B-17 with bombs below and 8 targets around the edge in red text.  About the size to have been sewn to the back of an A-2 jacket.  Some remnants of paper pasted to the reverse as though it was once in an album.  Included is a 8.5x7" paper illustration of the B-17 with the crew in caricature along with their nicknames.  About good-very good.  Deserves to be researched further.
