CHARMING ANTIQUE FRENCH LARGE FADED TIMEWORN TOILE QUILT ROSE BASKETS c1880

Please scroll down for more pictures.
This divine antique French quilt dates from the 1880s. It is an attic find and has some marks and I have left it just as I found it. It may end up as a cutter if the marks do not remove so if you are looking for perfection this is not for you. But if you adore antique faded textiles it is so delicieux. I would have it cleaned and use it as it is, it is still strong and the look is divine. The quilt is a good heavy weight , filled with traditional woollen batting and is all hand quilted. I was told it was prepared for a marriage quilt. The front is printed cotton toile, the background at the moment grey/white with old tea colour but I believe it will clean up and the design is soft old rose madder red with cream. The design is so beautiful, superbly detailed rose filled baskets with trailing small flower vines and rose bloom swags.Each basket hangs from a cord with a rose and corn tie at the top. This sides are timewornand there are some small holes but basically it is all sound. There are some brown tea coloured marks throughoutthat may remove with laundering. The reverse side is a Procencal design of exotic blooms and foliage in soft reds, orange, deep lavender and cream. Very similar in condition to the toile front. The quilt measures: 6feet 6 by6 feet 6" (200cms x 200cms) Sooooooooooooo...a quilt for cutting and reworking, to be cleaned , to tie with a ribbon for display, a throw.....lots of options. It has no odour from storage and is surprisingly fresh. Delicieux, timeworn, old well loved & faded but still gorgeous.....a bit like me!! This old toile quilt weighs 4 kilo!
