This is a third-phase chief-style blanket, c. 1865-1875. The blankets design elements are made up of terraced diamonds and horizontal (long dimension) bands. There are three separate band panels on the rug, one on each edge and one in the center. The bands contain the colors aniline red, aniline brown, and indigo blue. Full horizontal length natural tan and brown bands fill in the background between the decorative panels. The edge panels design elements are, from edge inward, a wide blue band, a thin red band, a medium brown bans, a thin red band, a wide blue band, a thin red band, a medium brown band, and a thin red band. The central panels design elements are, from center outward vertically (short dimension) in both directions, a wide blue band, a thin red band, a medium brown band, a thin red band, a wide blue band, a thin red band, a medium brown band, and a thin red band. The central panel is divided into two separate panels by a whole terraced diamond located in the exact center of the blanket. The background bands design elements are from center outward in both vertical directions, a wide tan band, a wide brown band, a wide tan band, a wide brown band, and a wide tan band. There are a total of nine terraced diamonds situated around the blanket. In the central position is the whole terraced diamond, four half terraced diamonds are centered along both horizontal and vertical edges, and four quarter terraced diamonds are situated at each corner of the blanket. The terraced diamonds design elements are, from center outward, a red diamond with five aniline mustard bars in the center progressing symmetrically from long (horizontal) to short, a larger blue diamond underneath, a larger red diamond underneath, a larger blue diamond underneath, a larger red diamond underneath. All the other diamonds (half and quarter) follow the same design pattern. Each corner of the blanket has a blue tassel attached to it. On the underside of the blanket is a sewn on addition along one of the horizontal edges of a white Velcro fabric on top of a tan muslin fabric. On the opposite horizontal edge in the corner is a sewn on white fabric identification tag with the alphanumerical identification written in black ink of "E2038.1". There is some damage to the underside to the warfs/wafts, along one vertical edge. This damage was reported in "Conservation File 7/75" which at this time can not be found. Also along one of the horizontal edges is some edge destruction. Both damaged areas could be repaired if taken to a profession rug conservationist.
