$1085. 

Thousand Pyramids Quilt with a most unusual center of a printed panel depicting an elegant equestrienne with her hound. It is unusual for a highly pieced quilt to have a central panel. In this case, the elegance of the subject compared with the "country" aspect of the quilt makes for an even more unlikely, though successful, pairing. It is knotted, not quilted. Very good condition. Measures 65" x 87". From the Chadwick Family of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
