Good wedding blanket from the tiny Maonan ethnic group from Guizhou/Guangxi Zhuang. This has a supplementary warp silk embroidered phoenix and butterfly pattern against a red back ground on a handspun cotton foundation. The purple dye has bled into the blanket on the on the lower right hand section (noted in enlargements), which is why the price is low on this piece. Bordered by three sections of cloth the actual size is L: 118cm/4.6.5in and W: 73cm/29in. Total size with border L: 160cm/63in and 122cm/48in.
