Your right about it being a beautiful design, however I feel it is nothing more than a fantasy piece. Someone put a lot of work into this wing with the cut out shield and fancy lines. But just about everything points to a recent mfg wing. I have also seen this in a full size version. Construction of the wing and the backing material is not period WW1. They did have the sense to use a tiffany catch which is a nice touch but I would have to pass on this one. Notice that there is absolutely no wear what so ever to the metal or the wool.
