Antique Earliest Bates Mill Maine Usa White Matelasse Wedding Bedspread For Sale
This wonderful Bates Mill here in Maine was founded in 1850. I believe this exquisite spread is from the early years.The originalBatesMill was closed in the 1960'sbut this is probably from the 1800's.They are known for top quality materials, designs and production. This is a pure white matelasse withfloral and geometric designsprobably produced during the aesthetic movement. It features symbolic flowers, most notably ferns, lily of the valley for white purity and manypomegrantes with swags for fertility. It is quite beautiful and well kept in cedar. It is basically in mint condition with some yellowing of the early organic starch. this is easily corrected with light washing in a mild soap. It measures about 80" x 80" Very nice antiqueMaine treasure.
