This blanket is a heavy weight car rug in gorgeous mauve taupe.
Blankets of type were made of very fine wool, spun into a very fine yarn and then woven with a double weave process that put the top layer as patterned and the under layer a solid colour. Effectively producing twice the thickness and density.
This heavy weight design make is perfect for durable use such as picnics and coverings.
Warm mauve taupe with light cream, deep bark, and terracotta red in plaid design. The solid colour side is matching mauve taupe.
Classic Car rug size 140cm x 180cm.
Tassels top and bottom edges in excellent condition.
Original label is woven on tan damask. Traveller, with a plane and ship image. Pure Merino wool, guaranteed moth proof embroidered on the label. This is a blanket we have not had before and believe it likely to be made in Australia.
There is some surface wear to the patterned side of the blanket in a couple of areas. Mainly where the cream pattern intersects. (see photo). There are two patch repairs and a couple of small marks.
A wonderfully useful blanket, likely 1950's/60's made. Perfect for the caravan, vintage car or picnic hamper essential.
