OPTICAL ILLUSION PATTERN OVERSHOT ANTIQUE COVERLET red and blue
   

 



Like a Vasarely oainting that is an optical illusion of advancing and receding patterning, this design  winds up looking like curvalinear elements across the surface. All wool. woven in red and blue squares and rectangles (photos 2 and 3 are over lit, the red is more subdued, not this bright). Thin and fine, skillfully made. Fringed.Wonderful condition. Handwoven more than a century ago, yet still as fresh and useful today.
