Zhuang Heirloom Baby Blanket
This rare and unusual old baby blanket is of a design unlike any other we’ve ever seen. A lively geometric pattern of lustrous embroidered silk in shades of pale copper forms a lush field of running diamonds separated by grey lines, and with white accents. The foundation has warps of white cotton alternating with light indigo cotton, which create a neutral, grey background. Uneven coloring in the image is caused by rhe sheen of the silk and is not obvious in reality. Condition is very good, with minimal wear and a lovely softness. Possibly early to mid-20th century.
