This extraordinary Victorian Crazy Quilt has the most elaborate embroidery I have seen. The center is a Japanese fan with the figure of a geisha within it. Additional images include: other people; birds, flowers,moon and stars all done with the utmost detail. It is actually what is referred to as a contained crazy as the images are divided into squares set on point. The quilt is made primarily of velvets with some satins. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890. Measurements are 78" x 79".
