This glazed chintz Wholecloth quilt is as crisp as the day it was made some 160 years ago. It was certainly packed away and did not see the light of day. The printed fabric consists of rows of floral bouquets. It is probably English. It is unusual that such an elegant front has a very plain cotton backing. It is quilted with chevron patterns throughout. The quilt measures 96" x 98". It is from the Plumer Humphreys Barton family, one of the first settlers of Newbury, Massachusetts. Made circa 1840.
