Very collectible 1880 antique OHIO STAR CRIB QUILT. The quilting is all HAND DONE at approx 8 stitches per inch. The quilt is all cotton with a thin cotton batting.
You can still see the seeds when held to the light. The size is 56" by 50" The quilt has been FRESHLY HAND LAUNDERED. The piece work is all HAND DONE. Not many of these crib quilts survived 135 years. This one has had a little wear and repair to the outside sawtooth.
I see one small stain as shown. This would make a great wall display as a piece of art work to preserve. Getting harder and harder to find good ones.
