Beautiful very clean soft cotton chenille bedspread with 2 colorful peacocks centered on the bedspread. They are surrounded by hearts with flowers and curlicues. Two smaller birds are at the top by the pillow area.
The background is white and features purples, deep pink, red, yellows, and greens. A lovely eye catching combination!
CONDITION: Very, very nice condition -- the chenille is still very fluffy, with no fading. HOWEVER...There is one small area at the right foot of the bottom of the bedspread with an old repair. Basically this gets lost in the design and `hang' of the bedspread, but must be mentioned for complete accuracy! I have shown it in the pictures. Otherwise this bed spread is in GREAT pre-owned condition. Please look this over in the pictures! I already washed this spread before listing it, and it held up beautifully.....even the old repair!
SIZE: It measures approx. 100" long by 75" wide. I have shown this on a super thick pillow-top queen size bed and it is NOT big enough...look at the over hang on the sides. This is a TWIN bed or DOUBLE bed with a bed skirt sized bedspread. (Please note this one is smaller and NOT meant for a queen size bed!)
HISTORY: These older chenille spreads have a captivating history. From the 1930's till the 1950's, there was a stretch of highway going through Georgia that was referred to as Peacock Alley. Travelers, from the East Coast on their way South for vacations, would see these colorful handmade chenille bedspreads hanging on clotheslines. The local ladies had found a new way to market their gorgeous bright peacock chenille bedspreads and an important cottage industry was born.
