The back is comprised of solid black mohair plush with an attached maker's label which reads "CHASE" in gold letting. The two panels have a butted binding and are reinforced with black machine stitching.
|Provenance||The L.C. Chase and Company (later shortened to Chase) was a manufacturer that came out of the Goodall Mill in Sanford, Maine. Chase was considered to be the highest quality producer of lap robes. It is likely this lap robe could have purchased from a catalog or possibly a local dry good store.|
