Lost Chilkat Blanket Found

A lost chilkat blanket that was in Colorado was brought back to Alaska. The blanket was believed to be woven over 100 years ago. The blanket was woven by Klukwan weaver Anna Klaney, it is going to be stored in Juneau after being brought back by Mary Paddock. Like most of the Klukwan ceremonial objects this blanket was either taken or sold to art dealer within the past 50 years. Since the blanket is back in its home state the Tlingits are very happy and the article says that if the blanket were to be auctioned it would be an estimate $150,000. That is really expensive for a blanket, and I thought my $60 comforter was expensive!
