Here we have an early vintage handmade kite from Alfred E. It is an eight pointed star.
There is no fading what so ever of the colors as they are bright and exciting as the day they were made. The major colors are yellow, blue and green with red and white lines in the design. It measures 36 inches in diameter at the widest points.
All of the braces are there and overall intact with no damage. It seems to be in excellent shape with the exception of its wrinkled condition from 50 years of storage. He made his kites to last. Please see photos for details.
