STARS DOUBLECLOTH ANTIQUE COVERLET


 
STARS DOUBLECLOTH ANTIQUE COVERLET


A most unusual discovery in a double cloth coverlet, woven probably in Pennsylvania and attributable to Kemp(?) (I have to find my notes) Eight Point Stars in octagonal frames repeat across the field. Reverse is natural ivory with red patterning, exactly the opposite. One flaw visible on red size is a small loss of the red wool, otherwise the condition is still absolutely usuable and the weaving quality excellent.
