Antique Red & White American Coverlet Domed Building Center Wreath 19th Century

IMMEDIATE – PROFESSIONALLY PACKED – FULLY INSURED - SHIPPING

Buyer pays actual cost of fully insured shipping, very safely packed. All Customs forms will state the actual selling price of items shipped internationally. A lady living in southern Indiana celebrated her 100th birthday earlier this year. She called me a few weeks ago saying she was doing her “spring cleaning” and wanted to sell a few things. I hit the road in spite of a mini-lecture from my wife reminding me that “WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOWNSIZING!”

The short version: The 100-year-old gal was, in fact, cleaning her house, something I’ve not had the energy to do for ten years. Second: She had some wonderful things to sell, this 78” by 79” (plus fringe) coverlet. Downsizing or not, I bought the coverlet and a few boxes of her accumulations, some of which are downright wonderful.

I think it is what coverlet people call a tied Weiderband weave. The spry gal in Indiana called it her “Centennial Coverlet” and said it was woven in Pennsylvania.

CONDITION: I think it is in beautiful condition. In the above, you can see a white thread trying to escape along one edge. There is one less noticeable along part of another edge, but I certainly wouldn’t call such signs of age to be serious at all. You’ll find two or three very small, very light stains, if you look too closely. Other than that, I’d call it “super.”

The building shown above is centered on each side. I want it to be Independence Hall, but truthfully, I haven’t a clue.

My favorite aspect? The big wreath in the center. I know you have noticed the coverlet is reversible – more white on one side – most red on the other. Is that what’s called “summer / winter?” Sorry, I got a C- in Coverlets 101.

Rather pretending to know things I don’t, I’ll turn it over to you for inspection. There are a lot more images below.

One more thing: I think it is cotton, mostly, but evidently some wefts and/or woofers or whatever they’re called, are wool. I can tell by putting against my cheeks. (My FACE cheeks!)

More images and commentary continue below my three "Prime Directives:"
1st: I never, under any circumstances, use a reserve, and rarely do I ask for an opening offer of more than $9.00 (sometimes even less).
2nd: I never end sales early.
3rd: I don’t usually clean, repair, or otherwise monkey around with anything. I push enough dust aside to expose any flaws, but if I discovered it in some dusty attic, you can look forward to a little dust on it when it gets to your house. If it has a flaw or a wart, I'll tell you about it.
So rest easy and have some fun.

That basket of flowers reminds me of those seen in theorem paintings. You too?

If you have questions, I’ll try to answer . . . cheerfully.

NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

GOOD LUCK
