$1875. 

For unknown reasons, the New York Beauty quilt pattern was most often made in the South. This example is no exception as it was made in Kentucky.

It has been laundered throughout its lifetime so the colors are a bit softer than they originated but consistently so. An old stamp on the back has the name PS Walker. Measurements are 70" x 82&q ...click for details
