The combination of Caesar's Crown with Mariner's Compass patterns and their placement are brilliant. The central and corner block compasses draw the eye throughout the piece. The floral chintz border and pink sashing soften the geometry of the pieced patterns. Professionally laundered and in excellent condition. There is very slight toning to the back that does not show on the front. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850. Measurements are 96" square.
