make / manufacturer: Earlys of Whiteny
model name / number: 5 point
Earlys of Whitney point blanket. 5 points. 86 inches wide x 96 inches long will fit a full/double bed or a queen. Scarlet red with black stripe. Black Earlys Whitney label in corner. Perfect for a mountain cabin or getaway. Extremely warm and well made. 100% wool made in England. This one is likely from the 1950's but not sure. There are books and websites dedicated to fascinating history of the Hudson Bay company and their famous point blankets as well as their top quality competitors like Earlys of Whitney - check out history online. This size is usually $500 or more. The picture is showing this blanket laying on top of a king size bed. You can see the length is great even for a king but the width would only fit a regular mattress queen or smaller.

The point system was created to show the size and value of the blanket and you could see the points even when folded. Dry clean only. This has been in a non-smoking house and kept in a protective bag. I will take this ad down promptly once sold so yes, its still available. Thanks for looking
