    Hi and Thanks for any Help You can give me on this one. I found it at a Yard Sale today! Yay Me!

    I show you tell! :) Thanks for any help! I LOVE THIS!

    It is 76" x 56" The first pic shows more wear than the flip side which is a lot more vibrant. It has it's condition issues. Some holes and one that was stitched up. I think it had a hand sewn border on it at sometime during its lifetime.

    Well that's all I know.

    Thanks Again!

    Okay, so I found out a little more about this Blanket. Apparently it is a Pendleton Blanket (google them if interested). I am almost sure of this because when I looked closely at the corners on the blanket you could see on one of the corners it appears that a label was once there. Since the company has been trading blankets since the 1890's that could make this one a rather older one so much so that they recreated the pattern not too long ago. I also found out that the "star" is a sioux star which doesn't make much sense because when they recreated it they called the blanket "Los Lunas" ... hmm. Interesting stuff! :)

    But I would still like to really date this. And the newer creations they had made form what I could tell so far where not in this color. So if you know anything such as where I could find out how old this one is... Please let me know. Thanks!

      Very nice, hard to find blanket. Probably from the 20's. The tag would help date it, lol
