$1435. 

Mariner's Compass quilt done in the most typical of eastern Pennsylvania ( Lancaster County, in this case) calico fabrics. Interesting use of the diamond inner border usually seen in Lancaster County Amish quilts. Fabrics are all strong and intact; several very light stains are not obtrusive. Measures 87" square; circa 1880. A well made example of a pattern that is very difficult to execute.
