1968 John Lennon Windsor Eyeglasses Music Wool Poncho Serape Summer of Love VTG. I got this from an old California hippie chic!
She bought it down south right after the Summer of Love. It is an amazing wool poncho with the likeness of John Lennon on the front and back, 2 faces looking inward. It is early Lennon for sure; he is still wearing Windsor eyeglasses (he later went onto wearing small Ful-Vues). It is ringed by music and embellished at the bottom in dreadlocked fringe.It is very large and will fit most to the knees. It is 40" across and 77" long. Fringe in front is 4" and 2" in back. Truly a one of a kind piece! No mothing, wear or problems. It is light blue and white/reversible. There are little flecks of other colors here and there in the weaving.
The material is thick like a blanket. It is thick and warm; perhaps made from reprocessed wool in Mexico. She said she got it below San Diego durring spring break in her senior year of high school (early 1968). In all my research and treasure hunts I have never seen one like it!
Would love to turn it into a beloved favorite piece for a Lennon lover.
