Vintage 78" X 84" Woven Coverlet~pre Civil War~dated 1844:
Offered here is a lovely vintage woven coverlet, measuring 78" by 84". The photograph was taken on a queen size bed. The same information appears on two corners, which I believe to be:
WOVE + AT +
RA + VILL +
OLEAN + CA
NAL + FOR +
E + OLDER
AGD 28 Y
N + Y + 1844It was stored in my grandmother's cedar chest for many, many years. It appears to be reversible, with a seam down the middle. For its age, I believe the overall condition to be good. There are condition issues, as pictured, mainly at the upper and lower edge; and there is also a discoloration nearer to the upper edge that is more significant on the lighter side, as well as smaller discolorations here and there. It comes to you from a smoke free home. Questions are always welcome, and many thanks for visiting.
