Offered for sale is a beautiful antique jacquard-woven coverlet in the "Frenchman's Fancy" pattern. Coverlets with this type of ornamental patternry were often referred to as "Figured and Fancy" rather than a pattern name though. The coverlet measures approximately 86" x 73" and is still in remarkable condition for the age and use wear it might have encountered. It is done in two colors, a dark indigo cobalt blue and a natural off-white, and is two-paneled with one center seam. The topmost edge has a small rolled hem with the sides being naturally-bound. The bottom edge has a dark blue fringe. There is overall age discoloration found with some darker brown coloration along the edges, but no color fade. There are two small threadbare holes, a small area of a few light pink/red discoloration dottings and threadbare pullings that are mostly to the light-colored side.These pullings are not holes though.There are numerous photos provided to show the worst of condition issues so you will know what you are buying. Please make sure to view all the photos carefully and enlarged to notice these flaws/conditions. The thread weave is very rough textureand coarse, rather than a silky fine thread weave commonly-found, and the coverlet is very heavy. It is very clean and was obviously stored very well as there are no odors, stainings, fading or other harmful issues. It is coming from a non-smoking shoppe.
