This little gem is unusual in that it is of a scale and size not usually seen. It would make an ideal throw over a chair for one’s knees in cold weather.
This pretty piece is in the traditional black watch plaid in green, blue, white, red and black. The fringes were twisted in several types of yarn, adding a nice finished touch to two of the edges. The colors have softened and muted to a pleasing rendition of this well-loved plaid.
It was manufactured in Great Britain by Burkraft from “pure new wool.” It dates to around the 1950s. I believe the small motif in the label in the right-hand corner is a hand put in a small bucket of water, probably to denote, “Hand Wash.” It also has a motif above it with a bucket and what looks like water with “40” woven into the middle, possibly referring to the proper wash temperature.
It is a thickly woven throw, even though on a small scale. It would be a charming accent piece in anywhere in your interior. Due to its size and scale, it could make a great cushion.
It is in excellent condition, with the yarn still fluffy and the colors well preserved.
It measures 27” wide by 42” long, including the fringe.
