Pendleton Indian Trade Blankets

To shop both wool Indian trade blankets and cotton Indian camp/Beacon/Esmond blankets be sure to check out the category list. This selection of Indian trade blankets will be wool unless noted. These blankets will be from the Pendleton Woolen Mills that include Pendletons, Beaver State, Cayuse and Blackfoot. Also included are Capps from the J Capps & Sons Company and Oregon City from the Oregon City Woolen Mills and sometimes a Racine by the Racine Woolen Manufacturing Company and with hopes a Buell blanket by the Buell Manufacturing Company. We are always adding new stock as it becomes available. Excellent books for reference on trade blankets that I recommend are Chasing Rainbows by Barry Friedman and Language Of The Robe by Robert Kapoun and a book with several pages of blankets is Chihuly's Pendletons by Dale Chihuly. A new book recently published and highly recommended is Still Chasing Rainbows by Barry Friedman.

I often post blankets for sale on this FaceBook page. 

Cayuse Indian Trade Blanket by Pendleton1930-40's  SOLD

Offering this Cayuse Indian trade blanket/shawl made by Pendleton Woolen Mills from circa 1930-40's. The blanket is in very good condition and is ready to enjoy. A handsome blanket with a deep green ground on one side with sunsuet shades, some black and great geometric patterns. Note how different the blanket looks on each side, as one side is so much more patterened!!  This is a shawl and would have generally been worn by women.  The size of 65x61 does not  include the fringe, of which some has worn off. The original label is still attached  and in great condition. This is a 9 element blanket and there's one similar to this in the book, Lauguage of the Robe by Bob Kapoun of Santa Fe, New Mexico.   The blanket displays nicely and hangs well if wanting to display on a wall.  A nice collectors trade blanket.

Oklahoma Native American quilt-The Airplane Quilt SOLD
This quilt is from an Oklahoma Native American ladies trunk as was told to me. She was from Tallequah, Oklahoma. The pattern , the Airplane pattern was probably from one of Cappers weekly publications. Some of the publications that Cappers Weekly printed that included quilt patterns were Kansas Farmer, Cappers Farmer and several more. This quilt is in excellent condition, as it looked to be pretty much unused and now has had just one wash. It is hand quilted in the Baptist fan pattern at a 5 spi. Lots of feedsacks went into the making of this quilt. The separate pink binding was put on by hand. Airplane and Native American quilts are harder to come by and this is a good example of a quilt from the 1940's with that pattern. Oklahoma
