Carriage Blanket with Embroidered Flowers
Ivory flannel carriage blanket was probably hand made, lined with ivory sateen. Four edges are a blanket stitch with blue knitting yarn. Blue satin ribbon is sewn around the four sides, three inches in from the edges. Outside edges of the ribbon are embroidered with blue yarn in a small leaf-like pattern, inside edges of the ribbon has the blue yarn sewn in a rick-rack like pattern. Two corners inside the blue ribbon have been embroidered with embroidery thread in flower pattern on long green stems, thin leaves and smaller plants that look like clover leaves and the clover flowers. A blue bow decorates the right side of ribbon. One edge of the blanket has blue tassels attached with blue yarn in the back. Sateen lining finishes the blanket.
