SALE * Early Quilt in Bold Pattern Ex-Collection
A knock-out of a quilt with great visual impact, strong color, and the well-loved cheddar in the flowers. Both the 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 are factors helping to pinpoint the good 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. I can find no soiling, rips, or tears. Minor wear patterns from age and normal use; 1 vague water outline.
