Product ID: T122

This item will appear in a forthcoming feature in a national Home interest magazine.

A beautifully intricate vintage throw in soft and authentic period colours, subtle yet sure of itself.  Crocheted by hand in vintage woollen yarns, in an intricate and appealingly 'loose' design pattern it almost certainly dates to the 1940s or earlier, judging by the hues of the colours, and the use of so many remnants,in such a broad variety of shades. It is truly a wonderful example of the make do and mend ethos of the the period elevated to art.  Period crochet pieces like this are steeped in history and the autobiographical past of the creators. The yarns were often parts of garments that were unravelled and remade together with newer remnants into throws and blankets They are precious iconic pieces to be cherished and used in creating a truly authentic vintage interior. Drape this lovely piece over an armchair or the sofa where it'll catch the eye, or fold and display on the end of a bed dressed in pure crisp white linen for an authentically vintage homeliness.
