Chintz Broderie Perse Center Medallion Quilt: Ca. 1830

It is difficult to imagine a more lush garden of chintz fabrics, exquisitely placed together. The maker cleverly created an open diamond in the center frame which is the perfect transition from the straight lines of the outer borders to the circles in the center. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. There are some water marks on the back that do not show on the front. The quilting in the center is in a clamshell pattern, relating to the circular appliqued motifs. Measurements are 102" square, ample for a king size bed.
