This is a stunning and well accomplished Antique Victorian Crazy Quilt started and completed between the years 1865 - 1893. It is signed beautifully by the artist and maker with a marigold colored floss embroidery signature of “K.H.B.” followed by a flying bird.

DESCRIPTION: There are 20 blocks highlighted by many printed ribbons which have been incorporated into the design. It is bordered on all four sides in a rich ruffle of various fabrics. There is so much detail to this quilt it is impossible to note all the features. Every time I look at it I see something new. I have provided 5 and can provide more upon request.

CONDITION: As a whole this quilt is in good condition. It has quite obviously been cared for as an heirloom and well stored away from dirt, dust, sunlight; however, there is damage to a particular striped silk fabric which has been used in four places, all are in poor shape (see image). The balance of the fabrics is not faded and exceptionally supple in hand. The embroidered stitching is completely intact and threads have held their color and are whole and strong without fraying. Backing is a dark navy polished cotton and tied in a bright gold/yellow... This quilt is clean: we have a smoke-free environment.

DIMENSIONS: 50 inches by 60 inches.

Feel free to contact me regarding any questions you might have. If you are truly interested I strongly suggest that you request photos of all 20 squares which I have photo documented. This item will be carefully packed and insured. Returns are accepted only if there is a gross error in the listing so please take careful consideration. My goal is for you to receive an item you think is even better than described.
