EARLY Vintage 1850's Indigo Blue & White Irish Chain Antique Quilt A+ QUILTING! OUTSTANDING Vintage 1840's Oak Reel Applique Antique Quilt AMAZING BORDER! This MAGNIFICENT cotton 1840's/1850's indigo blue and white oak reel quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted, with very early pale-blue-on-indigo prints used throughout. The unusually complex vine border wraps around three sides of the quilt.
It measures 78" X 84" and is in excellent condition, with the occasional small age spot, subtle toning near the edge of the binding due to the very early pre-1830? Binding fabric used (most visible on the back -- see pics) and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. There is quilting around the applique and in straight line designs in the background, all at even 10-12 stitches to the inch. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is a very early brown and blue fabric, and the batting is thin.
You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light. The AMAZING DESIGN, COMPLEX BORDER, and SUPERB CONDITION make this VERY EARLY COLLECTOR'S QUILT stand out -- TRULY MUSEUM QUALITY!
