Columbia Gives To Her Son The Accolade Of The New Chivalry Of Humanity WW1 For Sale
Columbia Gives To Her Son The Accolade Of The New Chivalry Of Humanity WW1:
This is an original WWI poster / print titledCOLUMBIA GIVES TO HER SON THE ACCOLADE OF THE NEW CHIVALRY OF HUMANITY.
President Wilson requested artist E. H. Blashfield to design an illustration for use on a certificate that would be presented to every veteran wounded in action during the recent World War.
I believe this design was later authorized for use in the official emblem of the Disabled American Veterans of the World War.
The inscription at the top reads, \" COLUMBIA GIVES TO HER SON THE ACCOLADE OF THE NEW CHIVALRY OF HUMANITY \".
The inked handwritten inscription at the bottom has the soldier\'s name, rank and unit, followed by the printed words, \"Served with Honor in the World War and was Wounded in Action\" and followed by the signature of Woodrow Wilson.
At the lower right side up in the picture also has: Designed by E. H. Blashfield 1919.
It is in used condition and has wear from age and use but overall is an amazing and rare piece and looks fantastic. It measures 20\" x 16\" in overall size. Please see photos for condition and artistic design. Thank you.
