Available is an incredible antique quilt in excellent condition. This appears to have been kept in unused condition and is a wonderful addition to your antique quilt collection.


The quilt is made in double Irish chain pattern, with alternating squares of red and green, set with white cotton fabric. The red has a small scale print with brown fabric. The green is an overdye with yellow print, as you can see in one small area where the yellow has faded and blue remains. It is bound from back to front. Backing is white. Hand quilted with white thread. Very thin lightweight cotton batting.


Excellent antique condition. One small brown mark on the back. Small tear in edge of binding. No major damage. It has not been washed and I do not recommend washing it.


Exact age and maker unknown. Fabrics and techniques used are consistent with a production date between 1860-1880.


Measures 93" x 72". Note it was photographed on a king size bed.

This is a vintage item with normal wear and tear due to its age. Review photos and descriptions carefully. I have made every effort to accurately describe these items. Message me with any questions you have before making a purchase.
