Fancy or Jacquard Coverlet 1848
1848. 74x87. Pennsylvania, USA. This is a Tied Biederwand in indigo and white in the "double roses" pattern with lattice-like outlining. The side borders have distelfinks and trees (or are they candelabra?), and the bottom border has birds and trees, one of which sports two roses. The bottom has white fringe. The sides are merely edged in more of the "lattice work". We cannot say who the weaver was; there are only two known female fancy weavers, so this was probably made for Elizabeth Miller. Backside has visible blemishes, front side only minor wear. This is in very good condition.
-Item is pictured on a modern size queen bed.
