CONLK6 Signed and Dated Crazy Quilt with Native American Symbols
Dated February 18, 1894
66 x 82 inches
Found in Maine
Full of symbolism and comprised of 20 blocks measuring apx 16” square, this Victorian crazy quilt is so unique. This artistic textile appears to be filled with Native American symbolism. Embroidered names, auld lang syne, staffs of wheat and ears of corn among other symbols, cover this art. I can say wonderful colors with wonderful motion. The front fabrics are a variety of wool, wool challis, woven silk and heavy cotton. The backing is all wool. This piece would provide great warmth as a quilt on a bed or to snuggle under, while reading or watching television on a couch. I can easily see this artistic quilt hung on a wall in your home or office. The only quilt with Native American Indian symbolism that I have ever seen. A rare treasure ready for you to see on approval.
