Antique wedding blanket, circa late 19th CE/early 20th CE, from the Bouyi aka Buyi China. This is tightly woven in three panels, from very fine handspun cotton thread with a silk floss yarn supplementary weft “well” pattern. The black cotton lattice gives the overall pattern depth. The wide woven-in border has a “wanzi” swastika meander pattern that seamlessly transitions from the black cotton to silk pastel. There is a simple repair on the edge (noted in enlargements) as well as a few very small holes, as expected from a 100+ year old piece. L: 144cm/56in and W: 87cm/34in.
