January/February 2008

We’re starting 2008 with a classic round corner Pendleton.  The company produced round corner blankets from 1896 through 1908 and they are highly prized by collectors. The colors are outstanding in this example.

February 2008 showcases a magnificent shawl – one of my favorite Racine patterns in a screaming bubble gum pink with forest green fringe. It’s a hundred years old and the condition is absolutely flawless. An Indian woman wearing this would have been visible not only to her immediate tribe, but to tribes on other planets.  The circle visible in the first picture is on the camera lens, not the blanket. If you’re bored why not write an amusing caption in it?
