AUTUMNAL PALETTE CAPTURED IN ANTIQUE AMERICAN TEXTILES AT FISHER HERITAGE
The golds, reds, and burnished earth tones we exult about in the landscape appear also in graphic pieced quilts, hooked rugs, and woven coverlets of the 19th century. Laura Fisher's FISHER HERITAGE offers a bounty of them at this time of year to enhance the season.
Many of the quilts originated in Pennsylvania Mennonite communities; they exhibit bold solid colors and often are found in untouched, never used condition thanks to the esteem with which their makers' families cherished them.
Leafy motifs - a favorite of mine in rugs - came in a seemingly endless variety of antique hooked examples originating from northern New England.
And beyond the classic indigo coloration in antique woven coverlets are attractive overshot and jacquards in warm and unusual autumnal tones.
So come see a different and visually compelling seasonal bounty in the American textiles at FISHER HERITAGE.
