Vintage 1890's All White Bride's Antique Quilt ~BEST QUILTING w/ Cherubs & Hearts!
This OUTSTANDING cotton 1890's all white bride's quilt is gloriously hand appliqued, with detailed curly-haired, winged cherubs with bugles in a four-block configuration.
It measures a generous 78" X 84" and is in EXCELLENT, UNUSED condition, with no spots or wear.The quilting is UNBELIEVABLE, with a dense, 1/2" center grid ground surrounded by a feathered/swag/ocean wave border, on a 1" grid ground, with very detailed (hair, eyes, feathered wings, bugles, etc.) cherubs/angels in the corners, with elaborate feather, heart, cable, and ocean wave outer borders... all at an even 10 stitches to the inch with faint pencil marks still visible in places. The back and hand stitched binding are white, and the batting is thin, with cotton seed residue visible when you hold the quilt up to the light.
The photos just don't do justice to this late nineteenth century MASTERPIECE in SUPERB CONDITION!
