Germantown Single Saddle Blanket : Historic : GHT 2062

Look at this vibrant saddle blanket!  This colorful and fancy piece was woven using Germantown dyed wool.  However, the white/ cream colored wool, is hand-spun native wool.  

The fringe which accessorizes the back edge of the blanket indicates that this was a Sunday blanket, or one used on special occasions as the fringe could be easily worn away from the saddle rubbing on it.  

This is a "single" blanket style and would have lain fully flat on the back of the horse - bareback or under a saddle. Today, it would look as it stunning adorned a wall, a table, or as a small area rug.
