1850's OVERSIZED QUILT APPLIQUED SAWTOOTH AND MAPLE LEAF BORDER HEAVILY QUILTED. Presentings an oversized appliqued sawtooth border and trailing maple leafs with Nine Patch variant in red and green and Flagstone patches quilt dating from the 1850's and skillfully hand sewn, and hand quilted. The white Flagstone patches all have hand stitched designs in center. This quilt is in wonderful, strong, as found condition. This quilt is reminiscent of a very grand and regal period when quilters had time to skillfully finish a quilt.
In unwashed fair/good condition, with many occasional tiny, faint age spot that will come out in this one's first wash. I have photographed some of the small minor stains and the faint fold marks from years of being folded unused. Some small fading/wear spots on sawtooth motifs. This quilt was not stored properly. No fading, no thinning of material, surface staining, water stains, this quilt needs a soaking badly.
One area of detached binding, and easy fix. The size is a generous 111" x 110". The quilt would work equally well on a queen to king-sized bed.
There are hand done stitching, throughout at 8 to 9 stitches to the inch. The back is white and the batting is thin. I have not washed this quilt.We are happy to answer any questions about this item. The items I sell are antique or vintage textiles. They are not new and not flawless.
