28 EIGHT POINT STARS ANTIQUE QUILT


 
28 EIGHT POINT STARS ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



Pristine minimalist early 19th century quilt. Two colors of the alternating prints comprise the several stars, many glorious early fabrics. The extra wide border is a substantial framework for the composition, and allows for the display of elegant refined quilting here. The stars are arrayed in staggered rows of four each with sharp points, enlivening the quilt surface as the eye roves from left to right and back again. In excellent untouched condition still, and of that generous early size that would fit a modern king size bed; when made it was intended to cover the space beneath the bed where often a small child's bed was concealed.
