TREE EVERLASTING or SAWTOOTH BARS CHINTZ ANTIQUE PIECED QUILT

 



Sublime untouched condition in an elegant and refined early early quilt. The still glazed chintz dates probably from the  first quarter of the 19th century or perhaps even earlier, the chintz manufacturer has not been researched, but is probably published in books about early fabrics. Made with just the one fabric alternating with ivory cotton that is finely quilted. Just repurchased from an estate, still a rare find that remains untouched.
