Anyone know more about this vintage blanket?

mahatmacat1February 1, 2011

I found a beautiful old handwoven blanket today, and instead of photoing mine, took the easy way out and found one very similar to it on eBay, in the hope that someone here might look at it and know more about it than the seller does. The listing is below--anyone know a name to put to this kind of blanket? I'm a sucker for anything handwoven or handknotted...Thanks in advance!

Here is a link that might be useful: I'm *not* the seller, just looking for info on this kind of blanket

I doubt the one on ebay is handmade. Trade blanket means it was a commercial product made to trade to the Indians, not an Indian-made product.

Looking at the eBay one, it has a very loose weave, cotton warp. It was never a high quality blanket and the years have not been good to it.

Yours might be better-made.
