A little piece of the mid nineteenth century. Early Welsh blanket.
This is one half of a narrow loom Welsh blanket , it came alone not with its other half maybe the family divided for practical reasons or possibly the other piece met with an accident , we will never know .
It came from a farm in Llanon with other early textiles and we beleive they all came from a local mill.
A very early piece the colours are either from natural wool colours , or from natural dyes . The stripe as with many of the earlier Welsh blankets only appears on one side. There are two theories as to this anomaly - 1 the weavers had not discovered how to make a double sided pattern or 2 only showing the stripe on one side saved on coloured wool / dye .
For a collection or strategically placed to get that taditional Weslh look , this is lovely desirable piece.
