Pristine, Dramatic, a true piece of historic art, this 1890-1910 Quilt is unwashed "Trunk" Quality. The deep rich red primary color is contrasted with dramatic white and black, softened with grays. It is truly gorgeous! Unwashed, this trunk was never used, has been passed down several generations to my client in that trunk. The backing is white cotton, all hand quilted except for the very edges which were sewn with the very early treadle machine stitches. The condition is superb as pictured. This lovely quilt is in the beloved Log Cabin pattern, measuring 79 inches by 92 inches.
Finding antique quilts in this quality and unwashed condition is truly scarce. We have provided close ups of the hand stitching for you.
