Made in England for the B. Altman & Co. a vintage wool knit baby shawl or blanket. A sensational color in a pale aqua makes this shawl truly a beautiful piece of vintage. Dating from the 1920's or 1930's, the light as a feather shawl is knitted in two different design styles. Finished with a wide scallop border.
It is 56" square and possibly never been used. It does appear it has not. Very nice condition.
B. Altman & Co., a department store was founded in the year 1865, located on 5th Avenue, New York City. The doors closed in 1990.
