I brought this back from England years ago and it is still in good condition. I have never washed it or had it cleaned and I used it over a chair, purely for decoration. These are so collectible by textile dealers. From the twenties and thirties - I don't see them any more. As you can see the pattern is reversed on the other side so these must have been made as two piece and then quilted. No wear on the edges as you often find on quilts, see picture. It's a nice pink and soft! Please ask before purchasing if you have an questions. I am asking ten dollars only to mail; it will be more but I will pay the difference if sending to U.S.
