EXTRAORDINARY Double-sided ANTIQUE CRAZY QUILT c 1880s WOOL. There are 7 inch nine patch blocks on the nine patch side.
The brown plain areas appear to be wool. This quilt has all sorts of interesting embroidery. The stitching is primarily intact, on the brown side there are about 8 to 10 small holes, on the crazyquilt side there are moth holes in 10 of the red pieces and perhaps another one or two. Edges have some wear along several inches.
There is a piece that looks like the initials WAG. There is also a very busy spider web type area of very small pieces near the bottom corner. There does not appear to be any batting in between these two quilts.This is been dated around the 1880s. If I kept this, I would repair this by putting the same color wool underneath the red pieces and then doing an invisible stitch. This is in quite good shape and I would not dare to call it a cutter. It would be gorgeous hung in an area between two rooms where one could see both sides.
My price is fairly firm. I will consider a modest price reduction, please use the offer feature.
