This Variable Stars quilt is done with the most beautiful of fabrics, highlighted by a gloriously colored red and blue chintz. The fabric is placed with the utmost of care so that, on half of it, the leafy vine motif creates the outer border. The same fabric is cut in half throughout to create an inner frame. The deep indigo on which the stars are set is especially dense and rich.
An added bonus is the chintz bars pattern used for the reverse. It is an entirely double sided quilt, stunning on both sides.
Condition is excellent. There is a brown spot about the size of a quarter near an edge on the wholecloth side. The front is without flaw.
Measurements are 94" x 100". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1840.
