This is a hand stitched DOUBLE IRISH CHAIN Turkey Red QUILT, and this one is amazing! It is the largest quilt I have available, and will fit today's queen and king size (with skirt) beds.
This fantastic quilt is from the early 1900's. The beautiful quilting is done in an Oak Leaf pattern, with fine 9-10 stitches per inch. There is a creamy white binding that has been hand applied on both sides.
CONDITION: This one is fantastic. No holes, no rips and just the slightest discoloration showing in the white squares. Overall even fading to the red squares, and discoloration to the white background, but nothing jarring. Looks great!
Please look at the pictures to see this, and decide if it is acceptable to you. Nothing offensive, it just reflects the age. Presents beautifully but it is not like brand new.
SIZE: The size of this quilt is 102" by 100". I have heard that these larger quilts were made for the `family bed', but there have always been custom sized quilts made for specific situations. They are rare, but they have been made, and this is one of the BEST out there! Shown on a high pillow-top queen size bed, and also a high king size bed.
