BASKET OF DIAMONDS NINE PATCH VARIATION ANTIQUE QUILT


 
BASKET OF DIAMONDS NINE PATCH VARIATION ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



Solid and printed cottons both in a red and green palette created a grid like design of a tiny baskets variation that has spiky contents without handles (also called Basket of Chips)

Red LeMoyne Stars along the outer edge  and dark green prints for triangles that edge the blocks. Fine workmanship with variety of feathers, chevrons, parallel lines. Superb untouched condition and early large size make this a great uncommon example from the very mid 19th century

Collected from a descendant of the maker, provenance available
