This 27-inch by 22-inch piece of a mid- to late-1800s handwoven jacquard overshot coverlet has a beautiful and unusual color combination of red, bright green, yellow, black and beige in an intricate geometric design. This is the original width of the fabric, so two of the edges are selvages. The beige thread is linen, the rest of the colors are wool--which explains the name "linsey woolsey" that these coverlets have acquired over time. This coverlet has beautiful texture and design. The first two photos show closeups of the two sides. It is reversible, with one side showing more linen and the other more wool. On one side, there is a cluster of brown stains (shown in the third photo), which does not show on the other side. There is also a small (less than 1/2-inch) tear in one of the selvage edges. The third photo also shows the entire piece of fabric. The last photo shows to two different sides in one photo. I gently hand-washed and soaked the coverlet in special soap and line dried it. I took great care so the fibers would not shrink or pull together, as can happen if a coverlet like this is washed. The result is a fresh, beautiful piece of fabric that can be used for so many different special projects.

I do my very best to accurately describe each piece of fabric that I sell, but please remember that this is an antique textile over 100 years old that has been gently used. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my items.
