A rare find--SIGNED along the lower border PHILADELPHIA 1804 WILLIAM AND JANE STUART. Monumental size with original fringe| as easy to use today as it was 200 years ago! Textured ribbed handwoven background| raised detail with a center star medallion| various stars and raised geometric motifs as a result of the complex weaving process; woven in two panels, center seam. IN PHOTOS THE CONTRAST IS EXAGGERATED TO SHOW THE DETAILS; ACTUAL COLOR IS A LOVELY WARM DEEP IVORY ECRU. Haven't done geneological research yet;  wonder who they were that they wanted and were able to afford their names so bold on their marital bedspread!
