Key Feature: Tidy light vintage rug
This is an early car rug made from firm dense and smooth duotone wool. These blankets are typically early 1900's but can date later than that. Impossible to tell in this case as there is no makers label.
Very fine weave and tight yarn gives this rug a smooth finish. The duotone consists of a warm taupe back and fine tartan check front in taupe, dark brown, cream, grey, gold and light purple.
These Car Rugs are heavy weight for it's thinness making it extremely durable. They are ideal over a back seat too. There are some minor flaws to the fabric (see photo) but is in excellent condition for age.
So in usage terms not the type of blanket you would cosy up in though you could probably survive some pretty harsh temperatures if you did! This type of blanket is best for outdoor picnics, part of a car or vintage display, to cover over a lovely big couch or protect the surface of a polished table - as a few ideas.
This blanket is at 134cm x 160cm.
Tassels top and bottom edges.
No makers label. A Fresh Retro Love, Restore to Relove label has been added.
A wonderful heritage blanket to use and admire!
