I don’t think we have ever had a better piece of patchwork than this fantastic 19th.c. double bedspread. Measuring 76″ x 88″ and made of hundreds of hexagonal pieces of fabric on a paisley backing cloth with lace edge. Quilts of this age were made from scraps of fabric salvaged from worn clothing and as such it features a remarkable variety of colours and patterns. A beautiful piece of genuine folk art in very good condition, some wear to the reverse.
Rare early 19th.c. dresser base in elm rather than the more commonly seen oak c.1810. Superbly figured timber mellowed to a very attractive honey colour.

Dimensions: width 78″, depth 18″, height 33″.
