Fine Japanese Large American Eagle and Stars and Stripes Textile Picture, Circa 1885-1900.

Fine Japanese Large American Eagle and Stars and Stripes Silkwork Textile Picture,

Circa 1885-1900.

Dimensions: 31 inches high x 38 inches wide x 3 1/2 inches deep.

The superb large silkwork depicts a large eagle with wings spread wide with a silver banner in its mouth with the motto  E Pluribus Unum- above a shield-form Stars and Stripes with three American flags to each side with ten scattered silver stars above.  These designs can vary in quality and condition.  This one is superb in terms of both.

E Pluribus Unum, the motto of the United States; Latin for "Out of many, One" it refers to the Union formed by the separate states. E Pluribus Unum was adopted as a national motto in 1776 and is now found on the Great Seal of the United States and on United States currency.

The 13-letter motto, E Pluribus Unum, was suggested in 1776 by Pierre Eugene du Simitiere to the committee responsible for developing the seal. At the time of the American Revolution, the exact phrase appeared prominently on the title page of every issue of a popular periodical, The Gentleman's Magazine, which collected articles from many sources into one "magazine".
