Here is an elegant graphic textile in dark Victorian woolens and cottons that is in absolutely perfect unfaded condition. This piece is appliqued, not pieced. Usually such a piece would be tied, not quilted. This one just has a cotton backing and binding in new fabrics. The only explanation is that someone recently found this piece that had been put away since the 1890's and never finished and had it backed. The coverlet was found in the Chicago area. It is quite large for a Victorian textile, measuring 78" X 94," and will fit a full sized bed. It is a stunning wall hanging. Fabulous!
