LONG ISLAND NY JACQUARD ANTIQUE COVERLET 1838 Edna Jane Howell
Edna Jane Howell, 1838, Riverhead Long Island was the local girl for whom this early early jacquard coverlet was woven. This ia a rare New York piece, in superb condition, with the characteristic background of LI coverlets detailed with dots. One of several 19th century textiles I have with the name HOWELL, am having research conducted to discover if these are family links. Would be lovely to have this coverlet, my sampler, and the Riverhead/Bayshore embroidered candlewick bedspread go together to the same home. talk to me!
