This elegant white trapunto was made originally as a dresser scarf but would serve equally well as a wall hanging. The grape; leaf and heart motifs are sewn with the tiniest stitches imaginable. The three dimensional effect is achieved by spreading apart threads on the back to insert additional cotton. Made in Pennsylvania; circa 1820. Measurements are 33" x 54" including fringe. Excellent condition. Measures 33" x 54".
