Tobacco premiums bedspread

Tobacco premiums bedspread
Date: between 1912 and 1920
Red flannel throw decorated with tobacco premiums. These printed flannel patches were distributed with tobacco products in the early decades of the 20th century. They were collected as sets by many people during this time period, and stitching them onto quilts or throws was a popular fad. Most of the premiums stitched to this throw depict the flags of the world. There also are a few printed with butterflies and American Indian rugs. The throw was made for Erle Francis at Westmoreland, Kansas, by a neighbor. Erle used it on his bed for several years.
