$50.00 USD

late nineteenth century
55 3/4" x 13", 141.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a length of hand woven, hand spun, striped indigo dyed cotton cloth which is studded with two applied cotton patches. As well, as can be seen in the lead and accompanying photos, there are small holes to the piece, each one shown.

The pattern is that of stripes of varied widths and the blue-on-blue design is handsome.

The length is lightweight and a bit threadbare in areas but overall it is handsome, has good age and is a joy to behold.
