This beautiful cottage-perfect vintage chenille bedspread was made by Carter's Ret Rac. It has the characteristic and lovely Ret Rac ivory matelasse background and is covered with heavily needletufted and varying designs of pink roses and rosebuds, swags and cameo surrounds in many shades of pink and rose. The leaves are lovely shades of sage green. There is a rose-colored swag around three edges of the spread, and a rose-colored border along three edges as well. Between the swags and border are continuous curly sprays of pink leaves. Three edges of the spread also have a beautiful 4-inch wide hand-knotted fringe (see last photo). The detail and colors of the design are absolutely breathtaking.

The bedspread is shown on a standard queen size bed that has a mattress about 13 inches thick. On this bed, the swags are on the edges, and the drop is about 18 inches, so the spread can be used on a standard queen with a bedskirt. (The pink bedskirt shown in the photos is not included in the listing.) The bottom corners of the spread are rounded. The bedspread measures 92 inches wide and 108 inches long, a nice size for a vintage chenille bedspread, made for a full bedspread, to go to the floor. Please do measure your own bed to determine the exact fit on your own bed before purchasing. The bedspread is in very condition, with a couple very minor blemishes. There is one rose design (shown in the closeup) missing some of the chenille on one of the leaves. Because of the complexity of the design, you don't even notice the blemish unless you are looking for it. There is also a very faint (and mysterious) yellow discoloration about 12 inches long and an inch wide at the top of the spread on one side, again not noticeable unless you are looking for it, and partly hidden when you tuck the spread over the pillows. There also are some tiny pulls here and there that are characteristic of needletufted designs and can simply be snipped off or worked to the back of the spread as they occur. The bedspread does have the original tag, which I have shown in an inset in the next to last photograph. This is a bedspread that displays beautifully, despite its minor blemishes. The price takes into account the fact that it is not perfect. This is a wonderful treasure that would really add a lovely touch to a cottage, country or shabby chic bedroom.

This is a large and heavy bedspread. Shipping is quoted to the farthest US destination and includes insurance. In some cases, the actual shipping cost will be less, and the difference will be refunded through Paypal immediately following shipment.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
