A fine piece of World War I folk art, a standard-issue U.S. Army blanket, 60" x 80", woven from olive-green wool with brown accents. A patriotic and enterprising soldier has embroidered the blanket with an enormous image of an eagle in flight, beneath a thirteen-star American flag, very expertly embroidered with cotton yarn and thread. The embroidery shows the expected minor loosening in non-central areas, with some negligible bleeding to the colors of the flag and scattered small holes at the edges, else very good. One of the finest pieces of true "trench art" we've seen.
