Vintage Cadet Blue & Oyster Bates Mill Bedspread~early Windmill Design~near Mint For Sale
This wonderful Bates Mill here in Maine has been closed for many years. There is very little if any mill production left in the USA. Bates is known for superb quality and fine traditional designs. and this pretty spread is no exception. It follows the pattern of many quilts, in that it is a windmill blade pattern. It is cadet blue and oyster. It has been stored in cedar. there are no pulls. some minor spots from storage but no wear and tear. quite crisp. there is the early Bates label and a dry cleaning label, so I don't think it has ever been washed but can be gently washed as it is pure high quality cotton. scalloped edges. It measures about 80" x 100". Very nice heirloom Maine treasure.
