Privy pocket that is extraordinary in several ways. Most wonderful are the graphics; the Irish Chain is set to create striking diamond and X patterns. This is the only privy pocket I have seen that is quilted; usually they are simply pieced like a quilt top.This is also earlier than other with which I am familiar; dates circa 1860. Hanging tabs; binding and one edge show some wear but the body of the piece is in very good condition.Measures 21" square; Pennsylvania origin.
