OUTSTANDING CHRISTMAS SALE, PRICED AT ROCK BOTTOM, STILL TIME TO GET FOR CHRISTMAS. Arizona in the 1970's, with several others. This one features 9 diamonds, 10 stripes. It is woven in natural wool, both warp and weft. It has 9 rows of weaving to an inch vertically, and between 13 and 17 rows to the inch horizontally.
Overall dimensions are 37" wide by 81" long. It appears to have had some strings on the ends that have worn off, but in no way compromises the blanket. It is soft, very pliable, not at all coarse like a rug.The dye origins are natural and aniline. There is some dye migration from previous cleaning. The color is a deep red, with white and either black or dark blue stripes....
There is some minor damage to the blanket from wear, and possibly insect(moths) damage. There are some small holes and a few worn spots, all in all not bad for being over 120 years old.
This is not museum quality, or I would be asking museum quality price, so don't expect that. It is however very nice display piece if you cannot afford museum prices..... Gallery and museums price high to cover overhead, I already have my home, so low overhead equals fair pricing.
I only tell you what I know, if I say it, I know it, if I don't say it, I don't know it. If there is anything you are particularly looking for, ask, I just might have it for sale.
