MUSEUM QUALITY Vintage 1870's Album Floral Applique Antique Quilt Nice Border! This BEAUTIFUL cotton 1860's/1870's (could be earlier) album-style quilt is precisely hand appliqued and hand quilted, with a wonderful floral vine border and 8 cutouts on two corners (this was made for a poster bed). It measures a generous 82" X 92" and is in very good condition, with light surface dirt and the occasional small spot.
There is quilting around and within the applique and in close straight line designs in the background, all at even 8 stitches to the inch. The back and hand stitched binding are white and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light. The WONDERFUL COLLECTION of FLORAL PATTERNS, DENSE APPLIQUE, and CLASSIC COLORS make this 19th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out! Auctiva offers Free Image Hosting and Editing.
