Signed 1843 Archibald Davidson Coverlet - Birds of Paradise

A beautiful antique Jacquard coverlet signed and woven by Archibald Davidson 1843. Archibald Davidson Coverlets are very collectible and you find them in every major museum collection.

This coverlet signed "Woven at the Ithaca Carpet Factory by Archibald Davidson 1843". Classic New York coverlet elements..Indigo blue wool and cotton, and they typically do not have fringe around the border.

The coverlet features Bird of Paradise, and medallions. Border also has Bird motif.

ABOUT Archibald Davidson: Born in Scotland around 1771 where he was trained as a weaver. Eventually he formed his Ithaca New York Carpet Factory in the 1830's where he would also distinguish himself as not only a master weaver, but also an innovative one.

These beautiful coverlets are always a burst of beauty when you see them on a bed. The vitality of the weaving really makes a statement.

CONDITION: Very good antique condition. No odors, or serious issues...it is sturdy and useable as found. Light overall soiling or aging a bit more in some sections, general wear with some issues on the border (see picture). It presents as beautifully as you see it on a bed. (I would secure the border issues)

SIZE: 88 x 72" (we show it on a queen size bed)
