B8 Homespun Black and White Check Blanket w/ Embroidered Name
Late 19th century
54 x 106 inches

This homespun black and white check blanket has been created from two hand woven 27” strips. There is some wonderful character to this piece, including a 4” square patch. The hand embroidered name, Christopher Riheuby Stuart, was probably added later. Many of the Stuarts from Maine are descendants of Mary Queen of Scot.
