Heirloom Quality 19th Century Whitework Embroidered Coverlet, beyond astounding! This is exceptional and so rare to find outside of a museum. Beautifully embroidered in white on white linen, representative of the kind of superlative whitework decorative accent sewn by talented late 18th- early 19th needlewomen.
The entire coverlet is profusely embroidered with a variety of flowers, foliage and other beautiful designs. All four sides are beautifully scalloped and finished the top of the coverlet, where it folds over, is different. A rare antique textile to add to your collection. Amazing, an almost impossible to find, lushly embroidered, romantic and opulent antique textile; extremely desirable almost 150 years ago and still treasured today. There may be a few tiny spots, but nothing distracting, this is a stunner.
