ARCHITECTURAL BORDER ANTIQUE BIEDERWAND DAMASK COVERLET, PA
Luxurious damask weave Biederwand full of varied motifs, framed by an architectural border called 'Christian and Heathen.' The dozen repeat motifs in the field and half-motif frames are curvalinear geometrics rather than the typical floral medallions. The other side is reverse coloration -- the deep rich ground with cream motifs. Unsigned but perhaps research can link the patterns to a known Pennsylvania weaver.
