Ca 1890 Sunflower Or Mariners Compass Quilt, 8 Spi:
Offered here without reserve is this boldly graphic ca 1890 quilt, quilted at 8 SPI. I'm not sure, however, whether to simply call this a "Sunflower" patters or a variant of the Mariners Compass ... will have to let potential buyers decide. She measures 91" x 75" and there are no rips, holes or repairs. There is a small relatively inconsequential smudge on the topside, visible in my 2nd picture (centered between the four lower center sunflowers) and a barely perceptible surface stain on the backside as I've tried to show in my last picture. So clearly the quilt could use a careful washing. I should also note, however, that there are several places where the green has begun to brown out ... see the border in my 6th picture and the green in my 7th picture ... nothing obtrusive and consonant with the quilt's age. Again, there is but buyer pays $16 for priority USPS domestic shipping.
