A medium size Mexican Saltillo runner from circa 1940's-1950's. This is not made of acrylic! This runner features a beautiful diamond tapestry of wool and cotton in the center. The other colors are woven in a beautiful ombre from bright to light color. The side edges are a straight. The warp fringe was not ever braided and is in fairly good condition. The fringe tells us that the warp is made of cotton thread. The colors are bright. There are no holes, as there sometimes are, in these old wool pieces. It's not in perfect condition but it's lived a life. These minor blemishes do not detract from the look of the blanket (at least to me!) It's made of wool and cotton. Would be pretty as a table runner.
One of a kind.
