CON DB1 Turkey Red & White Tree of Life

c.1860
67 x 79 (170.2 x 200.7 cm)
$3,300

A stunning pre Civil War Quilt in Turkey red and white. Hand pieced and appliqued trees are set diagonally in 10 1/4 x 11 1/2 inch blocks with white joining blocks between. The popular Tree of Life pattern has long been sought after and this rendition with unusual appliqued branches and pointed 'roots' is particularly beautiful executed in solid Turkey red on white. Skillfully executed, fine hand quilting covers every inch of this wonderful quilt and includes feather sprays, floral motifs and other symbols in single and double line quilting, outline stitching, and parallel diagonal lines.

On consignment from the owner, we have a hand written note from the descendent of the maker stating her's and the maker's names and date. Hand stitched to the quilt, it was removed for the quilt's wash in the bathtub and can be restitched to the linen backing if the buyer desires. A solid 1/4" applied Turkey red binding with a few insignificant 'bites' here and there that do not detract from the quilt's beauty have been left as is.

A gorgeous Civil War era quilt that would be stunning as graphic art on the wall or would make a magnificent statement on a bed. Professionally hand washed by Betsey this quilt can be sent to you on approval for private viewing in your home.
