Beautiful antique silk quilt top for your home, cabin or lodge. This handsome earthy quilt, with it's rich brown tones, was expertly hand sewn by someone with years of quilting experience as is evident by the tidy piecing and small hand stitches. A rare find in it's entirety as many antique quilts were cut up and used for crafts. The pattern is a traditional Log Cabin and the setting is known as Fields and Furrows.
The fabrics, made of silk, feature a wide variety of late 19th century patterns which makes this piece so lovely for displaying. We have many years in the quilting business and we feel this piece is best left as a quilt top and displayed where one can see and appreciate the fine handwork that went into it (such as a quilt rack). The silk is quite fragile and delicate and already has some area's of. As can be seen in our sample photos and there are several areas of staining aprox.
20% of the quilt is affected by disintegration and /or stains. We do not recommend washing due to it's fragility. It is possible to have this top quilted with batting, though it would be a delicate operation and we recommend against it. This handsome quilt top measures aprox.
72" X 82" (double bed size). Thank you for your interest!
