My first thoughts when I bought this is that it will look neat on an old doll bed. My second thoughts is that it could also be used on a country table as a mat. I think it will work for a number of uses so I will let you decide. It is about 18" long x 13" wide and is reversible. The ends have a calico red fabric and the centers are different...one side is blues and the other is a green-black design...both are made up of smaller fabric pieces sewn together. These have heavy threads here and there to secure the front, back and inside materials together. Most certainly a home made piece with some hand stitching...hidden stitches may or may not be by hand. There are a few faint marks but nothing major...I did not launder it. I would think this would look great on an antique doll bed!
