£420.00
Per item
A late 19th Century large patchwork quilt hand sewn using a 'hexagon' or 'honeycomb' patch working design. This quilt is of a beautiful dark purple colour scheme with bright pink border and small printed cotton patches. A straight running stitch has been used for the quilting which marries the patchwork top with its wadding layer and plain off-white backcloth. This unique piece has a few minor defects consistent with the hand made nature of an item of this age and charm.
colour Dark purple main cloth with small printed cotton patches in many colours. Backcloth is plain off-white.
