Stunning all hand stitched antique calico coverlet, with the most lovely fabrics in striking, warm and dramatic colors, this is a beauty. The coverlet measures approx 80" by 72", and has a star block design with floral and plaid fabrics, and plain fabrics in a soft salmony pink and deeper pinkish red. The condition is good for the age, there is some scattered staining which I have shown in close up, it is not that noticeable as the overall pattern "disappears" it to some degree, as you can see from the overall pictures. I would imagine the quilt would specialist clean to near perfect, but I have no local cleaner able to do this, so I would rather leave as is. There is some minor wear and splitting to the borders, otherwise the quilt is excellent, it would be lovely on a rack, or as the focal point for a master bedroom. The quilt has a massive amount of handwork, as both the sectioning of the fabrics and the actual quilting are all hand done, this would have taken literally hundreds of hours of work. Very special antique quilt in beautiful colors, I just love it.
