All hand sewn with gorgeous 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.
No backing, as with most every crazy quilt found, so I have termed it a quilt top. Has a "piano key" border around all 4 sides. Very high quality fabrics were used in this one, and a significant variety.Condition is as found, in excellent condition overall for an antique crazy quilt. There is one hole, about 1 diameter that could be easily repaired if desired, but it is otherwise ABSOLUTELY PERFECT.
NO DETERIORATION WHATSOEVER OF ANY OF THE FRAIL SILKS AND SATINS, which is so typical with similar fabrics in most 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. A PARTICULARLY NICE LOOKING QUILT TOP FOR DISPLAY, FOR USE ON A BED, OR AS BACKGROUND FOR A PERIOD COLLECTION.A very special and unique. Measures approximately 65" x 65".
One of the nicest antique crazy quilt examples THAT YOU WILL EVER FIND ANYWHERE. If you wanted just one, special crazy quilts in your collection, then this would be the one to get. THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION AND CAME OUT OF A CONNECTICUT ESTATE.A PARTICULARLY NICE ONE, AND ONE OF THE NICEST I'VE SEEN WITH THE BEST WORK AND GREATEST VARIETY OF WORK!! I don't think anyone will be disappointed with this special quilt top.
