You’ll need some sizable wall space to hang this unbelievable textile for 1904 Democratic Candidate for President, Alton B. Parker! Measuring 54″x67″ professionally mounted on wood frame, the blanket itself measures 48″x61 1/2″. Colors are simply spectacular and the condition quite excellent with only the most minor evidence of age and wear but no holes or separations. The needlework on this heavy wool blanket is remarkable and I do not recall ever seeing another so this presents likely a unique opportunity for the serious collector.
