PARTICULARLY COLORFUL & WELL MADE Antique Victorian Crazy Quilt Top, c. 1890, GREAT FLORAL DESIGN & HEXAGONAL Pattern ON STRIKING BLACK BACKGROUND. A GREAT ITEM FOR THE SERIOUS ANTIQUE QUILT COLLECTOR! DESCRIPTION: This is a particularly nice, particularly BRIGHT & COLORFUL ANTIQUE VICTORIAN PERIOD CRAZY QUILT TOP, c. Instead of the typical crazy pattern of the period, this was made in a beautiful floral design made out of a large number HUNDREDS!!!!
QUITE COLORFUL & STRIKING, as shown in the scans, especially against the black background. Mostly made of the same variety of colorful silk pieces. Smaller flowers shown are 3 diameter. I have never seen one pieced like this, or even one made out of hexagons.I have never before seen something from the 1890's like this. All hexagonal pieces appear to be hand sewn, USING VERY TINY STITCHES. Very high quality fabrics were used in this one, and a significant variety. Condition is as found, in mostly excellent condition overall which is unusual for an antique 1890 silk piece. A little damage in several places which is repairable.
I have not laundered this and preferred to keep it just as it came from the old estate. It doesn't need to be laundered however, and probably shouldn't be. Anyway, a VERY UNUSUAL, PARTICULARLY STRIKING CRAZY QUILT WITH EXCELLENT USE OF COLOR.
GREAT ON A BED, OR IN A COLLECTION, OR AS BACKGROUND FOR A PERIOD COLLECTION. A very special and unique. Antique crazy floral quilt top.
Colored part measures approximately 77" x 66". THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION AND CAME OUT OF A MASSACHUSETTS ESTATE. A PARTICULARLY NICE, UNUSUAL EXAMPLE AND ONE OF THE NICEST AND MOST UNUSUAL I'VE SEEN. I don't think anyone will be disappointed with this special quilt top.
