Double Wedding Ring Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania

Double Wedding Ring with a much more abstract quality than one usually sees in this iconic American quilt pattern. The use of solid and printed fabrics and their particular placement gives this an unusual sophistication. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts features an out of the ordinary Wedding Ring on the cover of the catalog of the exhibition "Quilts and Color: The Pilgrim/Roy Collection". This quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 82" x 84" to outer edges. Nicely quilted with several different patterns. Hamburg, Pennsylvania origin(Berks County); circa 1930. Backing is a solid color light blue.
