A medium size Mexican Saltillo wool runner from circa 1940's-1950's. This is not made of acrylic, as are the popular Instagram favorites of so many young Bohemians. This runner features a beautiful diamond tapestry. The other colors are woven in a beautiful ombre from bright to light color. The side edges are a straight. The warp fringe was removed by someone in the past and both ends are hemmed. The colors are bright. There are no holes, as there sometimes are, in these old wool pieces. There are a couple very small dark spots which I have tried to remove, to no avail. (See photos.) It's not in perfect condition, because of the fringe missing, but it's lived a life. The absence of the fringe does not detract from the look of the blanket (at least to me!) I have had this in my personal collection for many years and used it on many tables.
One of a kind.
