I had the utmost pleasure of acquiring a series of early Americana textiles from a collector. I will be listing them in various listings This is an amazing early loom woven jacquard coverlet. Done in linen and wool in the deepest darkest indigo blue and rich old red. The red is a raised pattern/design which I have tried to show in the photos. Displayed it has the very best early Americana appeal.
It is so much more incredible in person than my camera captured. Done in 3 seams 34" plus 12" (the central area) plus 33 1/2" (so aprox 79 1/2" total width) by 84 in length. In terms of condition, it is in wonderful condition for it's age. Very well maintained through the years. I noted some aging to the patina which only appeared in my photos, in person you don't really see it due to the deep dark color (see photo #8).
Fibers appear overall consistent, free of holes. There may be some minor thread loss, simply mentioning as most early woolens will have a bit of loss to the wool, inherent of early wool. The seams appear nicely sewn and still tight.
I did not detect any odors so stored well through the years. All in all, it is truly a remarkable example of early 19th woven jacquard. A much rarer hard to find example. In my many years I've not found anything similar.
