Hello and thank you for looking. The blue and off-white side was once a check, and the warp thread has faded with time, this side is very old indeed but still in wonderfully sturdy condition.
The opposite side is a French printed cotton, with burgundy, faded tones on an antique white ground. This quilt has a wool batting between the layers that is slightly thicker in some spots. The hand stitching has come unstitched in a few places. This quilt is wonderfully quirky, artistic and charming! MEASUREMENTS : this textile measures approximately 57 inches by 94 inches.
CONDITION I've freshly laundered this lovely quilt and it's ready to use. There are a few small holes, some light marks that didn't fully wash and fading Please see above and photographs for more condition details.
