Very rare in complete and untouched condition. This type of weaving was generally used by Moroccan Jewish families during the elaborate wedding ceremony (cf: "Jewish life in Morocco", where a similar embroidery is pictured).

This Princess Feather quilt (aka Prince's Feather) is the ultimate in Pennsylvania Dutch decoration. Both the fabrics and applique make for a rich, full pattern. The wreath center is different, yet very reminiscent of the Princess Feather design. Similarly, the star centers are closely related. The zig zag border inside the leaves; flowers and grapes or berries adds to the intense decoration. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition...

The fabric used to make this dress is just the best colors of brown and bittersweet. To add to the beauty the hem was let out to lengthen it and it so good looking it is too bad it doesn't show. The body of the dress looks and feels almost new, the arms on the other hand, are almost worn out. The left arm is so worn it is worn through. The little girl must have had a apron coverall over her dress every time she ever wore it...
