What does this mean?

Hello Mike,

I’m very glad that you chose Mearto for your online appraisal,

Considering the photographs, overall pattern, knot density and the colours,
I concluded that this is a Vintage 1980's TWA Print Commemorative Collectible Stadium Throw Blanket. These were ordered by the company as collectible memorabilia that will bear their name. It is not very rare in terms collectables or textiles but still an iconic piece for Airline Collectors. Your piece is %100 cotton and made in United States. It is of a machine made textile, no hand work.

Two opposing edges have multi-colored fringes and the other two have black and white fringes. The print includes TWA, Transcontinental Air Transport - Maddux Airlines and Western Air Express logos most importantly. Can be a useful decoration material if it is to be used as a wall hanging. Has a collectable value but not an artistic work. In very good condition. Most of them were probably given as gifts to employees.

Machine made textile blanket.

Dimensions: Probably 70 Inches Long by 52 Inches Wide (Based on examples)

Condition: Very good condition without any visible fault.

Provenance: From a TWA employee who travelled around the world.

Decorated by airline logos.

80-120$.
