Here is an American Art Deco (ca. 1920) textile with a very dramatic, geometrical design. "Pyramids" is the pattern's name, and it is appropriate to the decade of the opening of King Tut's tomb. This piece is hand-made; it is constructed entirely of silk appliqued onto cotton diamonds which were then pieced together. There is a four inch wide border of gold silk velvet framing the quilt top. This piece was never finished; the basting threads are still visible. There are some missing and shattered silks but not many, as this piece has been stored in a cedar chest since the 1970's and has never been used. It measures 68" X 88." It should be treated as fragile and kept out of bright light to prevent fading.
