Vintage c. 1950s-70s (could be earlier)
Gorgeous double cloth table runner
The fibers feel like cotton to me, though may have some wool content

Double cloth or double weave is a kind of woven textile in which two warps and two wefts interlace to form geometric patterns
Like all double weave textiles, this blanket has two right sides and no wrong side

Not sure of the age or origin of this piece. It reminds me of Welsh tapestry coverlets or bed covers (http://www.welshblankets.co.uk/catalog.php?cat=14), but the color palette is like nothing I've seen.

*Would look lovely and festive on your holiday dinner table!*

...

Measurements: 13 1/2" x 58" (including fringe on all sides)

Condition: Good. There a damaged area approx. 3-4" square on both the front and back. See photo 3 and 4. Some very small pin-head sized stains, may come out in a soak. Neither detracts from the beauty or functionality of this rare piece!

Thanks for stopping by the Trap!
