Description

This is an absolutely gorgeous Hand Embroidered Quilt Coverlet in the style of a Baltimore Album Quilt featuring floral wreaths, cornucopias and floral bouquets.

Album Quilts date back to the 1840’s and started in Baltimore. You can identify these quilts by the use of intricate appliqué patterns, most of which are floral or patriotic. American in origin.
Embroidery was also used. While other colours appear in the pieces, greens and reds are the most common colours found. These quilts were often made for special occasions.

This is a massive quilt in pristine condition with only one stain. The stain has been treated, but is likely set into the quilt for good. No appliqué on this one just lovely cross stitches.

Visually  Stunning !

This quilt is a great weight and large size.
Not too sure of the exact date but the back is 60’s or 70’s .
size 233.5cm  x 203 cm
        92” x 80”

please study photos carefully.
