Late 19th century Welsh blanket .
Made on the narrow width looms of this period ( most mills changed to wide loom around 1900 )
but we date it well after 1860 and the advent of aniline dyes and hence the lovely bright colours .
Colours include, red , purples and yellow over silver and cream in various combinations . Bolder border on three sides. Hemmed ends and joined up the middle by machine .
