What a luxurious array of glorious silk squares in this handsome quilt. Pieced probably from the workroom remnants of a tailor or dressmaker with access to the rich brocades, jacquards, and figured silks used for neckties, vests, dressing gowns, etc. Ruby red border. In near perfect condition - a few squares along one side show the beginning of fraying, easily remedied by covering with sheer netting.
70" square. silk c. 1880
