Our "rug orphans" are otherwise fabulous weavings that have been damaged over time.  We offer these weavings because they have historic value, and because with restoration can regain much of their former beauty, and value.  As you will see, you can rescue one of our rug orphans at a very reasonable price.

  #6835  39" x 26.5"  A Sunday saddle blanket circa 1900. This one was used, and used hard.  A classic, historic design...but a definite rug orphan. $450    Sold
