Rare Dated Blanket
c 1800

Extremely rare. Bought from a Norfolk, UK auction. Perhaps it was woven in that county.  This would be good for display in a historic house or for weavers of 18th century cloths to copy.

Description

hand woven cream wool, each end with two blue stripes, one end with 1800 embroidered in pink eyelet stitch, the other with the embroideress initials MS and then another S below, the four corners with remnants of embroidered wool flower sprays in ochre, yellow and white, 6ft 10 in x 5ft 7 in or 2.09 x 1.70 m, weighs  990 gm

Condition

Very damaged as you should be able to see. Ask for more photos. The MS edge has a 2 1/2 in or 6 cm tear. The centre is very holey and there is a large feint brown stain approx 6 x 5 in.

Comments

he texture is wonderfully crunchy. Of interest to weavers of reproduction cloths.
