Remarks:
Early Germantown (Saxony), Man's wearing blanket, unknown weaver. Firmly and smoothly executed blanket weave having 9 warp and 40 to 62-64 weft threads to the linear inch depending on yarn type. Lazy lines inconspicuous. Workmanship is excellent. Shows normal wear but is in very good condition. Pure early classic design Saxony wearing blanket, bands or stripes of white, red, probably indigo, with nine-spot theme in yellow, serrated six-sides central figure in center strip, and all the others two-three-or four sided (partial). Some re-twisted two ply ravelled yarn. Three ply is Cochineal, orange four ply is respun ravelled flannel. Orange has bled into the yellow in places. JBW dates at about 1870 based on the materials. Excellent condition. JBW evaluation.
