19TH CENTURY BASKET-STYLE DOLL QUILT, AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE
19TH CENTURY BASKET-STYLE DOLL QUILT, AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE:
Doll quilts are seldom ever seen in the style of a basket quilt because the work to make one so small in this style is difficult. That's one of the reasons why this ca 1870 example is so extraordinary. Others include the expert piecing and applique work, the choice of colors, and the inclusion of white fabric with pulled work decoration.
Mounting: Conservation stitch-mount on 100% cotton, treated for color fastness. The plexiglas museum box frame is u.v. protective.
