PARTICULARLY BOLD & STRIKING, PARTICULARLY EARLY Antique IRISH CHAIN Quilt, c. DESCRIPTION: This is a particularly nice, particularly striking antique 19th Century quilt. BEAUTIFUL IRISH CHAIN PATTERN, especially bold in the red fabric. It is as early as 1850 and no newer than 1870. Quilt is machine pieced and hand quilted. QUILTING IS VERY FINE (about 7-8 stitches per inch), WITH NICE FLORAL & GEOMETRIC PATTERNS AND FINE HAND STITCHING. Also has a very soft and clean feel. A little rust colored staining in a few places, but not bad.

About as good as you will find for something 150+ years old! Condition is as found, in very good condition overall. I have not laundered this and prefer to keep them just as they come from the old estate.

Could probably be washed if desired. Anyway, a PARTICULARLY NICE LOOKING QUILT FOR DISPLAY, FOR USE ON A BED, OR AS BACKGROUND FOR A PERIOD COLLECTION. WITH ANY QUILT COLLECTION OR CIVIL WAR PERIOD/VICTORIAN COLLECTION/DISPLAY. Anyway, it is a great looking, early antique piece!!!

Measures approximately 80" x 80". EARLY ANTIQUE CLASSIC RED & WHITE QUILTS ARE ALWAYS PARTICULARLY DESIRIBLE. THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION.
