This Hourglass quilt (aka Bowtie) is graceful and airy. It is very well quilted with wreaths in the white blocks. The same triangles of the Hourglass are turned on their side to create the very effective double sawtooth border. The quilt measures a generous 84" x 96", large enough for a queen or king size bed. At some time, the binding was replaced. There are no other condition apologies. Made in the 1870's.
