Decorative antique prints of “flags and signals of all nations” by George Hounsell (1873). Pennants,

We have just acquired a set of these very decorative and colourful lithographic prints by George Hounsell depicting the flags and marine signals of all nations (1873). The prints cover imperial flags, royal standards, maritime flags and pennants, naval signals, and yacht clubs burgees. The series depicts the important flags of all of the great 19th century powers and maritime nations. Hounsell Brothers were 19th century flag manufacturers and suppliers to the British Admiralty, and the prints were produced as a reference source. These vibrant prints would look great on the wall of a boat owner or sailor, someone who lives by the sea, and those with an interest in vexillology or 19th century history.
