Rarely does one find a Drunkard's Path in crib size. This makes perfect sense as most 19th century mothers would have wanted to steer their children away from such a life path. Fortunately, in the 21st century we can see beyond that to the wonderful abstract design of the Drunkard's Path pattern. This example is particularly nice because of the indigo color and inner triangle border. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 39" x 39 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
