If you want a piece of history, this is it! Stunningly beautiful horse hide and hair blanket from the 1800's. I purchased this from a man 78 years old. Very kind gentleman that shared a bit of history with me on the blanket. It had been his Grandfather's and was made out of one of his horses that had passed away. He said back then...............nothing went to waste. Part of the mane is intact. Not only did they make a blanket, but also a pair of choppers or mittens you might call them. You can tell by looking at the choppers that this was a hard working man. This blanket has thick and beautiful wool on the backside. It must be INCREDIBLY warm. It was used by his Grandpa to cover up in the harshest winter conditions in Minnesota while traveling to town in his horse drawn sleigh. His Grandfather grew up in the Bemidji area. I would have loved to visit with this gentleman even more, but he was running the estate sale and folks kept him busy with questions about other items. I felt he had much more to share with me, but his attention was diverted to getting back to running the sale................. Blanket measures 64" L x 56" W. There are 2 spots where you can see some of the stitching if you look very close. Blanket is in VERY solid and beautiful condition. The pictures do not do this item justice.
