corners are tight, original and in very good to excellent condition. One corner
has an L shaped reweave 2” x 1 ½” in the dark brown border and there is a 1” x
1” reweave in the dark brown border on one end.
(see photos) One tassel is
original & very good, 1 tassel half restored to excellent and 2 restored to
excellent. It is fairly clean now &
comes from a non-smoking home. Whites
should brighten with a cleaning. There
is mottling or soiled areas in the white.

itself. Near one corner is a small area
of faint red surface transfer bleed on one side only. Both sides are shown in photos above. Colors are nice in this piece of old American
