Workmanship is excellent. Lazy lines are tight and inconspicuous. New condition. Black and red Manta; Woman's dress; late, ravelled red flannel per Clay Lockett. Cross or plus sign decorative motif on ends, with stepped pyramid designs on border/finish, probably indigo. Black handspun, Z spun fairly coarse. Never used. JBW dates 1875-1880 because this pattern comes in them about 1860. JBW evaluation.
