Lovely, not perfect, but oh soooooo pretty!
Beautiful very clean soft sparkling white cotton chenille bedspread with 2 colorful peacocks centered on the bedspread. They are surrounded by hearts with flowers. The colors featured are yellow, gold, greens, blues, pinks, all set on a pretty white background.
CONDITION: Not new but pretty!! I have washed this spread before listing it. This is truly a bedspread that can be used. It is clean and presents well!
There is one stain near the part that is on the foot of the bed. It is a dark gray. Please look at the picture featuring the foot of the bed to see if you can accept this. This is the main flaw.
There are several areas of thinning of the background white. When looking at the back it is clear that some of the tufting is missing, but from the front it is still pretty. Please know this is priced with these light flaws in mind.
SIZE: 103" 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. For reference it is shown on a high 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.
