OK...this is another gorgeous peacock chenille bedspread! This time done in lavenders and purples along with a variety of sharp accent colors while the background is white.
As you become more familiar with this style bedspread, you will see that some bedspreads really are chock full of design.... while others, by less talented workers, have a 'skimpy design' quality.
This design is amazingly full, and the tufting is gorgeous and very plush! Beautiful very clean soft cotton chenille bedspread with 2 colorful peacocks centered on the bedspread. They are surrounded by hearts with flowers and curlicues.
CONDITION: great pre-owned condition with NO tears, NO holes, and NO stains. I have washed this spread before listing it, and it held up beautifully. This is truly a bedspread that can be used. The condition of these older bedspreads is everything, and it just does not get any better than this one!!
SIZE: 106" long by 98" wide. This older bedspread was originally intended to be used on a double bed, but works equally well on a queen size bed with a bed-skirt. Nice GENEROUS versatile size, with plenty of length to tuck under the pillow area. For reference it is shown on a deep pillow top 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.
