Collection of Churchill Weavers items being sold individually

background / provenance: We purchased a large box of vintage Churchill Weavers woven goods from an estate auction in Madison County, Kentucky. This took place in a small community not far from Berea KY which was the home city for Churchill Weavers before it ceased operations.

Most of the items have the Churchill Weavers tag sewn on, a few do not. And some also have the original price tag.

Condition: these all appear to be in unused condition. They are clean, smoke-free, but have been stored together (unwrapped).

Material: wool & synthetics, possibly both, depending on the piece. One piece is specifically marked as being Orlon (a form of acrylic put on the market in the 1950s and very popular in the 1960's).

Age / dating the pieces: Not easy to do given the long life of Churchill Weavers and the many products they produced. Style, material, tagging will all provide clues. We're not experts on this and welcome any further details you might have.

-------------

item in this auction:

one scarf / shawl, long rectangle. has condition issues, see below. untagged / unmarked but 100% attributable to CW.

this is similar to another piece listed now and one I sold a few years ago. I think this may be 1960's era with the addition of the sparkly silver thread lines.


materials: I think this is wool with acrylic.

colors / pattern / design:
all cream colored fabric with cream and sparkly silver horizontal accent lines at each end. ends are fringed. fringes are approx 1.25" long.

The weaving overall is delicate / the yarn is fine.

dimensions: approx 29" wide by 70" long.

tagged: none

condition notes: SEVERAL problems:  this piece has a number of holes along the verticle fold area. either they are yarn failures because it's so delicate or if it's real wool then it may be moth damage. There is a similar spot by one of the silver lines. I have photographed some of them. I count 11 of varying size along the center axis. overall appears in unused / long stored condition.

The holes are clearly an issue, but this piece still has value and life left in it.
