1930's Canadian National Railway Sleeper Car Blanket

$190.66

This 1930's wool blanket originally graced the sleeping cars of the Canadian National Railway. It's very heavy wool in a rich brown with a central, design in rich red, very dark green, gold and black. Canadian National is embroidered above this in script.

The wool is very tightly and densely woven, not fluffy and light like later wool blankets. Bordered with double-stitched, hand-sewn complementary felt edging and then hand trimmed for the ultimate finished look with the matching rich red binding on all 4 sides. 

Size 43" x 69" This beautiful wool blanket is a rare piece of railroad history which will look fabulous just about anywhere.

In good condition with only a couple of small moth holes, and one spot where someone carefully mended a spot, this blanket has been well loved over the years.
