All hand sewn with embroidered seams. A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT STITCHES AND COLORS IN THIS EMBROIDERY. Quilt is made of a variety of satin, silk, and velvet pieces. Extremely well-constructed, with extraordinary detail to fabrics, color, and embroidery patterns, again, with each piece outlined in bright hand embroidery at every intersection connecting the patches. This may have been intended originally or more likely modified later to be used as a wall hanging.In either case, a sleeve was added to enable a pole, so it can be used as soon as you receive it!! Green material is on the back and also is used as a border around the quilt. Very high quality fabrics were used in this one, and a significant variety.
Condition is as found, in very good condition overall for an antique crazy quilt. There is some wear and deterioration to some of the frail silks and satins, which is so typical with similar fabrics in these crazy quilts. I have not laundered this and preferred to keep it just as it came from the old estate. It doesn't need to be laundered and probably shouldn't be.
Anyway, a PARTICULARLY NICE LOOKING QUILT FOR DISPLAY, FOR USE ON A BED, OR AS BACKGROUND FOR A PERIOD COLLECTION, OR OF COURSE AS A WALL HANGING. A very special and unique. Measures approximately 38" x 64". THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION AND CAME OUT OF A NEW YORK ESTATE. A PARTICULARLY NICE EXAMPLE AND ONE OF THE NICEST I'VE SEEN WITH THE BEST WORK AND VARIETY OF WORK!!I don't think anyone will be disappointed with this special quilt top. 1890 ANTIQUE VICTORIAN CRAZY COVERLET QUILT, Wall Hanging, Hand Embroidered" is in sale since Sunday, October 20, 2019.
