Mid Century Modern Wood and Macrame/Woven Fibers Window Blind from the 1970's!
NOTE: I AM AWAY UNTIL MAY 24th. IF YOU WANT TO SECURE THIS ITEM, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PURCHASE IT, BUT KEEP IN MIND THIS BLIND WILL NOT BE MAILED UNTIL MAY 25TH.  THANKS.
A fabulous 1970's wood and macrame/fibers blind. The wood is a walnut color, with the macrame cord and woven through fibers (great different textures) being oranges, rusts and yellows, with a bit of brown as well. This is a custom made blind, marked November 1, 1976 and with the measurements 57-1/8 inches wide by 53 inches long. The colors are bright, and present truest on the 1st, 8th, and 9th photos.
Details:
  • There is a top cover piece overhang to the front of the blind, which covers the inner cord mechanism and the inner brackets.
  • The blind attaches to the window frame (I kept it over a glass doorway with screws and anchors in the wall board) with brackets hidden under the top cover piece that go through the back wood pieces of the blind.
  • There is a single cord to roll the blind up and down on the right-hand side.
  • The cord runs through a large metal grommet on each side on the top, and then down the blind through metal almost 1/2 safety pin-like structures on the back of the blind (I didn't have room to show these pictures, but if you want to see this just email me through Ebay and I'll send some photos).
  • Stamped November 1, 1976.

Measurements:Marked 57-1/8 inches by 53 inches (by ~2-3/4 inches deep on the top including the wood and brackets).
Condition: Very Good Vintage Condition.
  • The cord mechanism works fine, although the shade needs to be securely anchored to the window frame or wall for it to operate, since it takes some muscle to raise and lower the blind (it weighs ~10 pounds). Also, sometimes you need to finagle the cord closing mechanism manually to get the shade to be even across when you want it in the "up" position.
  • The wood blind slat pieces are in great shape, although there are very gentle signs of wear in spots that could use a quick dab of stain.
  • The woven macrame or fiber is also in good vintage condition, but I have photographed the one sign of visible wear I found on overall inspection (see the last photo for the missing spot of fiber, and the other full shots to get perspective on its location, upper right/middle on the flip over section front near the bottom). If you wanted, you could probably take a fiber piece from the underside top piece cover or back and glue it on the missing spot.
  • There may be other very minor signs of use, since this is a vintage item...
Please ask any questions. Sorry for the higher shipping costs, but this weighs ~10 pounds to start.
