A beautiful 19th century hand-wrought or homespun blue & white cotton jacquard loom double weave coverlet featuring a border with eagles, pairs of columns with Masonic symbols, spired buildings surrounded by stars, and small woodland animals, with a corner which reads “Agriculture and Manufactures are the Foundation of Our Independence, July 4, 1824, J. Vanderbilt - Gnrl. Lafayette”. The interior of the coverlet features large and small round foliate medallions. This coverlet was made to commemorate the 1824 visit of the Marquis de Lafayette, the last surviving French general of the American Revolutionary War, to the United States. The name J. Vanderbilt was probably the maker of the coverlet. This piece is in very good overall condition, with some minor toning on creases and along some of the border, along with other minor imperfections and border losses. Dimensions: 95” h x 77” w.
