Dating pendleton labels - Point Blankets - age

Generally older point blankets are more valuable than regular wool blankets of the same age. Some unusual patterns, like the 1936 Coronation blanket, and particularly old point blankets may bring up to a thousand or more dollars at auction. However, the collecting of point blankets is a rather new field and it is expected as more information becomes available to collectors that even higher prices will be reached. I have yet to confirm the rumour, apparently circulated on the Antiques Road Show, that certain point blankets are worth tens of thousands of dollars. Part of the fun of collecting point blankets is that most antique and second hand dealers don't know what they have and the astute collector armed with solid information can find particularly old or unusual point blankets at a "steal".  In my second book, The Collector's Guide to Point Blankets , I have prepared a pricing guide that will help the new collector determine the current value of most point blankets from the late 19th century to the present.
