RED AND BLUE FINE ANTIQUE OVERSHOT COVERLET

The field at the center is a small scale red check, surrounded by a wide border of similar scale check in indigo. The woven piece is completely exuberantly surrounded by a hand tied lengthy red fringe. Closeups show the fine weave and the unusual variation this coverlet presents. Woven in two panels with a center seam. So distinctive because the format is a central red square, framed with a wide blue border, a treatment I have not seen before; typical weaves are one color or two combined with natural in an all over pattern across the surface, rarely formatted like this with a wide border. In wonderful condition, usable on either side
