Overshot Coverlet 1800-1840
1800-1840. 60x86. The colors are unusually vibrant for the age of this coverlet. "Foxes Chase" or "Stars" pattern in dark blue, madder red, natural and sea green. The sea green dyes must have been from different lots (probably over dyed blue and yellow) because one is more yellow than the other. The colors are opposite on the reverse side. The coverlet has self-fringe on the weft six-inch wavelike border, and it has applied fringe with about an inch of plaid on the bottom seven-inch border. The coverlet is in excellent condition.
