Vintage midcentury Italian wedding coverlet, incredibly heavy crushed velvet, cotton canvas base, viscose velvet ornate fringe. It is predominately a wine red color with gold or golden yellow, has a center cartouche with a pair of eighteenth century dress lovers, and cartouches depicting cherubs in the corners, and of course lots of flowers. These were imported from Italy for Italian American brides, used on the wedding bed, removed at night and not to sleep under, and finally packed away when the honeymoon period wore off. Seriously heavy, weighing about 13 pounds, ideally you will want someone to help you position it on the bed and remove it at night. It measures 92 x 104 inches, is shown on a double bed but will work on a queen sized bed. Excellent condition, no issues, nicely stored in an immaculate, non smoking estate.
Due to size, please note that the package will be oversized according to post office limits on box size, and the shipping for this item is going to be Oversize category for destinations far West or South of my Northeast location, so please check shipping costs on this page before deciding to buy, as shipping costs, while actual cost only, will rise sharply for those destinations, though not for destinations closer in to a midpoint of the country.
