For your consideration, this TRUE antique/vintage very Early 1900s handmade patchwork FOLK-ART quilt in an old RARE patter called Crazy Quilt w/turkey track stitching -- this is one ARTSY, VISUAL quilt! -- great GRAPHICS, using BOLD, BRILLIANT multi-colors and jewel-tones in darker shades -- all old 100% wools and velvets -- TONS of texture -- nice straight edges, and narrowly binded and backed in a coppery-red polished cotton fabric -- medium to heavy-weight batting which is either 100% cotton (or wool) or an old thin blanket of some kind (hard to tell) -- the quilt measures 74" x 74", and was totally hand-pieced, hand-embroidered/hand-stitched in turkey track stitches using a variety of embroidery thread, and then hand-tacked on the backside using golden yarn -- also a few names or initials were sewn into the piecework, making it even more INTERESTING....perhaps a namesake piece -- everything nicely done, while still maintaining a primitive FOLK-ART presence -- in VERY GOOD antique condition -- light wear/gentle usage -- strong, sturdy, everything intact EXCEPT a few loose stitches and a few small frays/shatters and/or moth-holes (much less than you usually see in pieces of this age using these fabrics) -- colors CRISP and VIBRANT -- fairly CLEAN with some light surface soil and a few small age spots -- nothing else to report -- these old beauties are getting harder and harder to find -- this quilt would be PERFECT for country farmhouse or Victorian decors, laid across your bed, stacked in your quilt cabinet, or CELEBRATED by displaying on the wall as a great piece of TEXTILE ART! -- a true collector's piece....and the price is right!
