OVERSHOT ANTIQUE COVERLET, red wool, wider white cotton, blue wool horizontal bands
Seemingly more cotton than wool, this handsome coverlet has wide horizontal bands of natural cotton alternating with tweedy bands mixing red and blue geometric figured wool. This is a wonderful bedcovering for any season, lighter in weight than a double-cloth or all wool coverlet The majority of the weaving material is white cotton rather than wool| creating a lighter look and weight to this handsome coverlet. Red and indigo wool create an intricate pattern arrayed as horizontal stripes. Woven in two panels| original fringe woven out from the borders. IN PERSON COLORS ARE SOFTER RED AND RICH INDIGO|NOT AS SHARP AS IN PHOTOS| WHERE I HEIGHTENED THE CONTRAST TO EMPHASIZE PATTERN.
