Pretty Antique Floral Durham Quilt | C1900-1910 | Edwardian | English | Dense Quilting | Large
Pretty Antique English Quilt. C1900-1910.
A Fine example of an antique Durham/ North Country Quilt. Dating from the Edwardian era. Very large in size and every inch covered with highly skilled dense hand quilting.
This quilt probably came from a wealthier household as only a limited number of fabrics were used. Material has lovely soft cotton florals and other plain shades of pastel pinks. The reverse side is plain pink and shows how skilled and detailed the hand quilting is . The varied quilting patterns are tight, precise and even. The central floral panel is surrounded by 3 strips of pink in various shades .
Excellent condition. Hand finished edges. The reverse has a slight variation in pink tones and one area has a few deeper pink marks. See deatailed last photograph. The front of this quilt is superb.
Very large / size will follow shortly
