Rare Oregon City Indian Trade Blanket- Black/White-SOLD(Item: B-839)
Offering this hard to find color of an early, circa 1920's Oregon City Indian trade blanket. The colors of only black and grey with alittle white and having the original grey felted binding makes this blanket one of the more desired blankets made by Oregon City. I personally love this combination,,, so it may be a matter of choice in colors. The condition of this blanket is excellent, as blankets go , some might consider close to mint ,,, seeing a small moth spot as shown and looks like it was stored well for many years. Both sides of the blanket have a different look,, one of the charms of these blankets, having 2 in one. A fantastic collectors blanket and it displays so well and looks handsome on a wall or however one might want to dispay one. The wool blanket retains most of the Oregon City label in the corner, dating to it post 1920. There is a blanket like this in the book Language of the Robe by Bob Kapoun on page 97 and also one with this pattern in the book, Chasing Rainbows by Barry Friedman on page 140 upper right. It was noted that this pattern was featured in a 1925 catalog. This is like a black and white quilt,,, they are hard to find too....
