The cloth pattern takes its name from Tattersall’s horse market, which was started in London in 1766. During the 18th century at Tattersall’s horse market blankets with this checked pattern were sold for use on horses. At this period in time in England, if you owned horses you were the wealthy, trend-setting elite. This time may now be a bygone era but you, as the new trend setting elite need to have a tattersall designerliner in your home to show your influence and status! Available in Black.
