1896 Franco-Russian Commemorative Banner for Cronstadt Toulon

An extremely rare banner, produced in 1896 to commemorate diplomatic exchanges in Cronstadt and Toulon - both significant in forming the Franco-Russian Alliance.

In order to improve relations between the two countries, the French Fleet visited the Russian naval base at Cronstadt in 1891. Russia returned the gesture in 1893 and visited the French military port of Toulon. A commemorative flag was produced in 1896 to mark the occasion.

The flags are in the French tricolour, with the Russian Imperial Eagle in the middle. The gold banner above has the date of 1891, with Cronstadt in Latin and Cyrillic. Below is the exact banner, but with 1893 and Toulon. On either side of the eagle is “Paris” and “Louvre”. Louvre is the district of Paris where the alliance was signed.

The flag came with a collection of items from the French Ambassador Gustave Lannes de Montebello, who was attached to the embassy in St Petersburg at the time of the alliance. The flags were meant to have been sold individually, but for whatever reason have never been separated. As a result, the banner consists of 6 identical flags, which appear to have been made into a curtain. They are maker stamped “Depose Laveissiere & Chamont – Deville Les Rouehn” On the bottom of the flag. The condition of the banner is extremely good.

The original photograph shown in the pictures isn't included in the listing, but a good quality facsimile of the original photo of Gustave Lannes is provided instead.
