Victorian crazy quilt - 66" x 72", with silk, velvet, brocade and hand embroidery. Each piece is outlined by fanciful embroidery, and there are several small embroidered designs - pansies, a bird, a butterfly, flowers, turtles and a figure of a boy and a girl. The backing is a fine, smooth flowered cotton.
Crazy quilts were all the rage from about 1876 through the early 1900's. The former owner has kept this quilt in a cedar chest for over 50 years. We have a little information about the makers, which we are happy to pass on. The silk has deteriorated on a few squares, as many Victorian silks were embedded or washed with metals to give them "rustle" and substance.
The quilt is clean and the embroidery is intact. There is a slight cedar odor - this usually airs out easily.
The photos show the quilt folded over a rail - all four "quadrants" are shown, so you can get a closer look.
SuzansTreasures is moving - we are reducing our current inventory and will reopen in our new location in the fall.
