This is a fine old Antique Buffalo Robe w/ Wool Backing that has been in the same family for many years. It was originally owned by a close friend of Milford Chandler, the famous collector and widely acclaimed expert on American Indian material culture. This antique buffalo robe is backed with dark green wool and trimmed with short red fringe, which is typical for these. It also features a symbol embroidered on the back in red, and we speculate that this is the mark of the maker.
The buffalo robe measures approximately 5 feet wide by 6-1/5 feet long. It is in excellent condition and is a perfect size rug. These old time robes were sometimes made from robes that were actually old painted ones, but unfortunately this is not one of those. However, it is quite desirable for the collector. This antique buffalo robe will look great on your floor or wall. It is the only one we have, so don't let it get away!
