This Cockscomb and Currants (aka Grapes and Oak Leaf) applique quilt is done with very fine stitching. The quilting depicts patterns of ferns and a variety of leaves. The applique border beautifully repeats the arms of the primary blocks to create a graceful frame. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. It is believed to have been made by Miss Effie Kinder in Jackson, Missouri; circa 1870. Measurements are 74" x 96".
