|Late 19th century|
This exceptional softly-woven transitional blanket displays the simple geometry of a checkerboard design. The creativity of this weaver exhibits a wonderful, artistic effect by the choice of various aniline-dyed yarns (white, yellow, maroon, red, aqua, and two shades of orange). The rhythm and lively interplay of this unusual color combination animates the whole into a striking weaving.

|Transitionals have often been called "the blanket that went on the floor" and can be loosely dated from 1880 to 1910. These weavings are usually without borders and lack the typical "rug look." However, they are too large and coarse to be used as wearing blankets. It was an era when weavings were not created as clothing but were transitioning to a commercial product for the market. Although the quality of weaving often left something to be desired, it was an era of bold experimentation and many design influences from traders.|
