The Lord of the Rings Comforter (Tolkien Enterprises/Cannon Mills, 1978)

It’s real, and it’s spectacular. The copyright date is 1978 by Tolkien Enterprises, and the manufacturer is Royal Family by Cannon, which I’m pretty sure refers to the American textile company Cannon Mills (1888 – 2003).

The comforter (twin sized) doesn’t appear in the 1979 LOTR/Tolkien Enterprises catalog, and this is the first time I’ve seen one, so there can’t be too many floating around.

    That is amazing. “The black riders” look like they took some imagery from the movie but added a lead nazgul based explicitly on the action figure. Love the fellowship picture — which was also on the SPI War of the Ring game box and I assume was on the movie poster. Neat find!
