Superb Hand Quilted Durham Quilt C1920’s
Out of stock
A superb example of an expertly hand quilted Durham /North Country Strippy Quilt.
Beautiful even stitches in elaborate patterns cover this wonderful example of English Quilting at its best.
Soft greens and creams on one side and a very striking pink and yellow/mustard on the reverse. In excellent condition overall . If you look very closely there is the slightest colour run on the pink side but really not noticeable and doesn’t detract from the overall look of this exceptional quilt.
It’s an added bonus to have the family details and provenance. This quilt was made for Laura Elliot probably as a wedding gift (see first picture ) Laura married and became Laura Bartlett. Laura’s grandmother, Ellen Elliot had the quilt made for her.
The family group was taken when Ellen Elliot and her husband only had six of their nine children – Laura was the first born.
