Description

E786 – Superb example of a very rare style of Ewe chief’s cloth in which square weft faced blocks in two colours alternate with equal sized blocks made up of various colours of weft faced stripes, each block separated by red and white weft stripes. The densely packed wefts throughout give the cloth an exceptionally thick heavy weight and handle. We rarely find cloths of this type – perhaps one every 18 months over the past 15 years or so, and the overall red/pink colouration of this example is unique. Dates from circa 1900-30s. Condition: Very good, one strip has been removed and used for some neat patches.

Measurement: 126 ins x 80, 320 cm x 204,
