Esmond Indian Camp Blanket SOLD

(Item: B-703)

Offering this 4 color Esmond Indian camp blanket and often called Beacon blankets in general. This is actually an Esmond brand blanket, although the label is gone. It's a cotton geometric patterened blanket with colors of deep red/wine, yellow, blue and black. The blanket is in very good condition,  the sateen binding looks to be gone, but one can see what the fabric was like "under" the binding. The blanket still has lots of body and is a great blanket to use or display. It's been washed, as have most of my cotton blankets and is ready to enjoy.  This is a blanket kinda like a favorite pair of worn blue jeans,, you can wear for years and it just gives them more "patina".  The black has faded to a demin like black and the red and softer red/wine. The generous size will work on some of todays beds too.  One can always turn a blanket with the longest dimension across the bed and just cover the top of the bed part with another blanket that complements it. There's a full page picture of a blanket like this pattern in the book Chasing Rainbows by Barry Freidman on page 250.  A classic blanket...
