This is a vintage parade cane 48 star US Flag, a small printed cotton cloth piece. It is 16" x 11." The American Flag had 48 stars from 1912-1959, before Hawaii and Alaska became states. This one is in very good condition, the colors are bright, but there are some rust stains. The flag is attached to a steel pole that slides into a metal cane. You can use the cane walking around and then pull the flag out to wave at parades. The flagpole does not come completely out of the cane, it just extends out and remains attached at the end. There is a black painted metal knob at the top end. Total length of the cane is 36" when closed. AVS.
