Pretty Victorian Framed Patchwork Quilt / C19th
A really pretty patchwork quilt.
This large 19th century quilt is a lovely example of an English framed patchwork.
There are a vast array of Victorian fabrics of that era. Although there are many, many colours the minty green fabric is used most frequently.
This is a delicate quilt C 1850’s .
Hand pieced and hand quilted with cable designs.
Some fabrics are a little worn in areas which is typical of some fabrics of the era.
The brown dye of the time typically eroded as there was iron in the dye and it behaves like rust would. If anything this makes the quilt even more authentic.
There are areas/patches which have been professionally restored in keeping with the quilt.
This romantic quilt would make a great feature in any room.
Please note the detailed pictures show the true to life colour.
