Description:
Red and blue princess feather pattern quilt with interspersed oak leaves and a sawtooth border. Made circa 1870-1885, this stunningly visual textile is highly unusual due to its dark blue ground and red elements. Most all early quilts in this style have a light-colored ground, typically white. Decidedly different, the applique and quilting are by hand and the piecing is by pump treadle. There is a blue and red bar back, made from the same, plain weave, cotton fabrics as are used on the front.

Condition: remarkably great with no significant condition issues.
