EVENING STARS ANTIQUE QUILT early 19th c


 
EVENING  STARS ANTIQUE QUILT early 19th c
   

 



Fabrics to revel in including a still glazed chintz with birds, and early cotton prints in harmonious tones of forest colors, indigo and cream, all in a fine quilt. Openwork pieced stars in a pattern a bit more complex than the traditional eight point star. Documented by the NYState quilt project of the American Folk Art Museum, tag on back corner. Elegant and visually stimulating, uncommon example beautifully preserved from the first half of the 19th century.
