82. American Collectors - Boleslaw and Marie-Louise d'Otrange Mastai



This Grouping is one of the most interesting in the Zaricor Flag Collection. All these flags and artifacts were a part of the acclaimed collection of noted antique dealer Mr. Boleslaw Mastai and his wife Marie-Louise d’Otrange Mastai, formerly of New York City, and later Amagansett, Long Island.

Their collection, a labor of love and a homage for the country that provided shelter after the 1939 invasion of his native Poland,  was the product of fifty years of collecting, research and exhibition by the late husband-wife team.
 

Boleslaw Mastai, started collecting in the mid 20th century and amassed to greatest private flag collection in the United States, which he detailed in his ground breaking book The Stars and The Stripes; The American Flag from Birth of the Republic to the Present, published by Alfred Knopf, New York 1973, and is hailed as a revelation of the American Flag as both art and as social history.
 

The husband & wife team exhibited many of these flags in this Grouping  at some of their  many exhibitions.
