Once again, it's stunning to realize that such a contemporary looking pattern and color combination can be more than 125 years old. This Hourglass (aka Bowtie) pattern quilt is made entirely with two beautiful printed fabrics. The tan background material is probably 10 years older (circa 1860) than the pink (circa 1870). Incredibly crisp, unwashed condition. Measures 84" x 88"; Pennsylvania origin.
