The border is nicely cable quilted with wreaths in the corners. The front is wool with a cotton backing. Pristine condition; measurements are 66" x 78"...

Nine Patch crib quilt that is one of the most elegant examples of this pattern that I have seen. The lush variety of printed fabrics date from the 1830's - 50's.

A finely scalloped border is a wonderful frame and the blue printed backing fabric is jaw dropping. It is in excellent condition and has been professionally laundered...
