Stunning Zo/Tedem blanket from the Burmese Indian border region. This piece is all silk, which indicates it was used on ceremonial occasions or owned by a high status woman. Mantles of Merit by David and Barbara Fraser has a near identical piece, pg 89 images 148 a,b, and c but their piece is mostly cotton, dated 1930 to 1960 so I will date this one the same. The feel on this piece is incredibly soft and supple, really something that cannot be conveyed through photos. There are a few tiny pin holes otherwise excellent condtion. L: 1.9m/74in and W: 1.16m/45in,
