Antique Wool Horse Carriage Barn Blanket 54 X 69 Brown British Plaid 1910 1920
Antique brown caramel plaid heavy woolen horse carriage/ coach blanket circa 1910/ 1920s/ 1930s, a handsome vintage piece that has a dazzling presence, perfect for a period-perfect film set or photo shoot. It has a vintage Burbery vibe, but has no label. It is definitely old, and came from an estate collection in Long Island of Victorian clothing and textiles. Stroock is a name that is associated with carriage blankets of this era, though this one has no labels. This one looks like Burberry, but there are no labels. It is in excellent antique condition with the kind of wear you might expect, but not many stains or holes (and none that go through the woolen). The colors are a muted caramel, and the images show a few different hues, but the light catches it sometimes and it looks more caramel and in other light is looks more muted, but in person it is very butterscotch. It is piped in a woven tape. See condition report above for more details. Weight: 4 lbs, 4 ounces. Follow me on InstaG: Chipper1963 / Chip Cordelli, Brooklyn, NY. I have lived in NYC for 30 yearssince the late 80sand have been in and around high fashion and luxury retail for decades. Through the years I found that sourcing items for specific events, photo shoots, and interior design projects was a valuable skill in a city that produces images, events, and interiors that influence how style is seen throughout the world. I started my career in New York City in the late 1980s dressing display windows at Henri Bendel and the elegant Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in the glory days of real story-telling windows. It was there that I learned the art of styling designer clothing & creating an aspirational & romantic mood with merchandise that helps build a relationship with the clothes we wear, and the emotion that people have with properly presented merchandise.
I had access to the finest luxury designer clothing like Claude Montana, Pauline Trigere, Coco, Mr Beene and others, and learned about expert seam construction, the feel of good fabrics, the details that matter, and the high tech fabrics that are constantly innovating the marketplace. It was also a time (the 80s) when the shift in the social food chain began to change, a time when the Ladies Who Lunch began to be replaced by a new moneyed group who changed the way retail was conducted, and I always longed for the days when shopping was an event, a treat, and madame was served champagne in dressing rooms and the clothes were not thrown on rounder racks in discount departments. My mother also wore lots of Bonnie Cashin in the 1960s and 1970s so I was aware of the modern minimalists, and sought them out for her when I found them. Since Im shopping constantly, and love fancy estate sales and sample sales, I scour them regularly and with great skill; the result is an online shop that I consider a finely curated collection of vintage clothing, home accessories, & mid century odds and ends from high end homes in the New York City area. I love helping source stuff, and just KNOW that I have tons more stuff than is listed here, so if you are in film or television production just ask for specifics and I will probably have something for you, or be able to understand what you are looking for without wasting your time.
I have been in the biz and know how it works. Follow me on InstaG: Chipper1963 Chip Cordelli, Brooklyn, NY Check out my other listings. My shop is constantly evolving, and new items are added weekly.
