Royal Hawaiian Quilt: Circa 1910
Hawaiian quilts are prized by collectors for their beauty and rarity. The Royal Hawaiian Flag Quilts are the most scarce. The appliqued lettering on this quilt became the motto of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1843. It translates to - the life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness. The eight stripes of the border represent each of the islands of Hawaii. This example was probably made in the first years of the 20th century. Some family history is available to purchaser. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measures 74" x 76".
