Hello and thank you for looking. Textile LOVE this fabulous find is an antique French quilt dating c 1840, various ages for the fabrics, some a bit earlier! I LOVE this work or art. This quilt uses a combination of the most wonderful floral fabric, vermicular design, geometric and floral stripe!!
It's a pieced quilt, very thin quilt! Light weight with only a very very thin cotton batting. I've left this quilt in original, as found condition as some collectors prefer to launder themselves. This quilt is grubby and if one plans to use it as bedding, it will need to be hand washed.
No problem to wash it, but it will need it. MEASUREMENTS 63 inches by 62 inches. Please see condition details above. There are some small holes on this piece on the pale beige corner on that fabric. Please see my other Antique French fabric auctions by clicking View Sellers Other Items.
