Catalogue Description:
It is possible that this was a school piece made as an exercise or under supervision because this type of loom work was done under Mission Schools around the Great Lakes. Loom woven with cotton thread is an 8-point star pattern in pink, blue, yellow, red and navy. The design looks like it came from a pattern book and is not finished.
