Antique Quilt with Bold Flowers
A knock-out quilt with great visual impact and strong color. It is all original. Dates to c1840-70. Both trumpet & round flowers, along with bold color, were found in American quilts as early as c1840. Entirely hand stitched with meticulously sewn stitches on front and plain cloth backing in an intricate design of diamonds and concentric circles. These factors help pinpoint the age of the quilt.
Great condition with no fading or discolor. Any color differentiation you see in our pictures are shadings from the light. A couple of light spots show in the photo. These are from the window in front of which the quilt was hanging. In super condition with only the most minor wear patterns from age and normal use. From The American Quilt Collection, NY. 82" X 71"
