Four Color Biederwand Coverlet, Pennsylvania 1848
1848. 72x102. This unique and historic coverlet has inscriptions: On the left, "S.B.MUSSELMAN WEAVER HILTAUN BUCKS.CO" and on the right, "THIS COVERLET BELONGS TO RUBEN HEFT 1848." The body of the coverlet is woven in a four roses and sunbursts pattern, with all bordered by baby eaglets and those bordered by red enclosed letters saying in repetition, "PENNSYLVANIA". A further border consists of a double layer of stars. There is no seam. There is fringe on three sides and a binding on the top. There are a few see-through holes, but this is in otherwise very good condition.
