Knitted wool afghan
Description Knitted wool afghan made in Rochester, New York circa 1865. Six triangles edged in blue decorate each of its four sides; three blooming flowers on a white background decorate its center. The central floral square is surrounded by a blue frame. The afghan was most likely a baby blanket made for Edwin C. Paine, the donor's brother, who was born in 1865.
