Elongated hexagons set on the diagonal form an unusual Honeycomb pattern quilt. Made primarily of Civil War dress silks with an occasional piece of velvet. Has damage to no more than 5% of the silk pieces which is virtually inevitable with these types of fabric. Beautiful distribution of fabric and colors to form an overall pattern of great depth and complexity. Measures 68" x 82"; circa 1865. Pennsylvania origin.
