Miscellaneous, Textile, Serape, 84" x 40", Black, Vintage, 251
This striking vintage blanket is woven in black and bright colors (yellows, blues, greens, pinks) in a classic serape pattern, centered with an eye. While it has a few small holes (pictured) the color and condition are excellent, considering it dates back to the 1940s or ‘50s. It’s also enormous (7’ long!) and has some DDR history -- it was used as a prop on our Spring 2021 Maria photoshoot. Let’s just say there’s a lot to love about this blanket!
