Ombre Multi-Colored Authentic Vintage Saltillo Mexican Runner, No Fringe, As Is


$ 345.00

A large 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 long blanket, or serape, features a beautiful diamond tapestry. The other colors are woven in a gorgeous ombre from bright to light color. The side edges are straight. The warp fringe was removed by someone in the past and the the cut ends are not fraying. The colors are bright. There are a few worn away spots, not exactly holes, as there sometimes are, in these old wool pieces. There are a couple small dark stains 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 and have even hung it from a dowel on our family room wall.   

One of a kind. Free Shipping.
