Description

Approximately 9 x12 and seemingly wool- very soft and not scratchy at all. The weft (or the one running opposite the white that becomes the fringe) is unusual to me, looking like a mixed brown wool or natural fiber I’ve seen in Native American jewelry and rugs. It is in colors of a true crimson red (not burgundy as it seems in the pictures), a purple/lilac (not grey like it seems in pictures), yellow, and cream/white. It is not straight along the sides at all and the former owner seemingly folded the fringe underneath at the two ends. It doesn’t look like it was ever taped- I am going to lay it out flat. It is extremely dirty, but easily folds. I have not seen a border completely absent of “lines” like this one. Also the weft and fridge at ends are loosening/unraveling. I know it came out of a very old home for my part of the world, having been built in the 1920-30s.

Provenance

Bought in a Habitat for Humanity Re-Home store in Denton, Texas adjacent to the University of North Texas.
