This is a very beautiful doll quilt all hand sewn and quilted with just the best very early calico and chintz fabric from 1820-30's. It looks fabulous hung or on a doll bed or used as a table mat. It is a wonderful study of early fabrics. It looks like it was made into a doll quilt in 1870-80's by the little red calico print fabric used at the top edge. The back is the original back and is early chintz blue green fabric. It is 18 1/2" by 15".

This is a very interesting piece created by an early artist very skilled in needlework: an oval shaped map of England and Wales and small parts of Ireland, Scotland and France, the oval measuring approximately 19 1/2" by 17" (about 27" by 22 1/2" in the vintage gold frame). Judging from the seated figure of Britannia and the lettering and overall handling, I'd estimate this to date to the late 18th or early 19th century...
