OUTSTANDING Vintage 1850's Princess Feather Album Applique Antique Quilt! This MAGNIFICENT cotton 1850's red, green and white album. Quilt is hand appliqued and hand quilted, with appliqued background feathers and an unusual floral/feather border.The quilt came out of western Pennsylvania. It measures 94" X 96" and is in fair condition, with the occasional age spot, surface dirt in places, subtle color loss in one of the greens in places, and popping and damage in most of the red (see pics). The white background and binding are sturdy.
The quilting is SUPERB, with quilting around and within the applique and in close straight line, grid, and feathered wreath designs in the background, all at an even 9-10 s. The back and hand stitched binding are white, and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light. The DAZZLING DESIGN, LUSH HAND QUILTING, and CLASSIC COLORS make this late 19th century PRESENTATION QUILT stand out! Get images that make Supersized seem small.
