PARTICULARLY COLORFUL, GORGEOUS Antique Victorian “CRAZY” Quilt, DATED 1899 & LOADED WITH EMBROIDERY & EMBROIDERED EMBELLISHMENTS, From Massachusetts Estate. A FEAST FOR THE EYE OF ANY SERIOUS ANTIQUE QUILT COLLECTOR! DESCRIPTION: This is a particularly fantastic antique VICTORIAN CRAZY quilt. IT IS THE NICEST ONE I HAVE EVER HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN. VERY COLORFUL & STRIKING, as shown in the scans. All hand sewn and embroidered. Made of all satin, silk, and velvet pieces. THIS, WITHOUT DOUBT, IS PROBABLY THE ORIGINAL QUILTER’S MASTERPIECE!!! Extremely well-constructed, with extraordinary detail to fabrics, color, and embroidery patterns, some of which I’ve never seen in any crazy quilt embroidery book. Thirty (30) 10 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ blocks, each outlined in sturdy black ribbon with yellow feathered embroidery and starbursts at every intersection. Particularly nice and bright embroidery connecting the patches. The entire quilt is surrounded by very fragile black silk fringe which could be replaced or removed if desired. ALSO, LOOK AT THE VERY HIGH NUMBER OF EMBROIDERED EMBELLISHMENTS!!! …. Including some very scarce and interesting ones. In addition to flowers and butterflies, there are several different, detailed spider webs including 1 large one complete with a spider! A popular motif in 1890 crazy quilts, 2 dogs, A PAIR OF DICE, a child, fans, a cross, a very fancy embroidered “B” (probably the maker), etc. AND THE BEST PART IS THAT IT HAS THE EMBROIDERED DATE OF 1899. A quilt w/initials and especially a date is very scarce AND HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE. Also, particularly rare, this quilt includes 2 ribbons. One is a blue sports ribbon, obviously won and a proud piece to include, printed “Worcester High School Boat Club, Worcester, Mass, 1897″. The other one is printed Sept. Could this be related somehow to the famous Tanglewood estate in Lenox, Mass. Which became the summer home of the BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA? Scans show it all, although I would need far more than 12 pictures to show everything. Pictures also do not do this quilt justice. In excellent condition overall. Only 2 small fabric pieces have some fraying, which is amazing condition for an antique crazy quilt. I have not laundered this and preferred to keep it just as it came from the old house as found. Doesn’t need/shouldn’t be laundered or cleaned. A PARTICULARLY NICE LOOKING QUILT FOR DISPLAY, FOR USE ON A BED, OR AS BACKGROUND FOR A PERIOD COLLECTION. A very special and unique. This has backing material in excellent shape. Measures approximately 54″ x 65″. THIS HAS BEEN PART OF MY PERSONAL COLLECTION AND CAME OUT OF A MASSACHUSETTS ESTATE. A PARTICULARLY NICE EXAMPLE OF A DATED ANTIQUE VICTORIAN QUILT, AND ONE OF THE NICEST I’VE SEEN WITH THE BEST WORK AND VARIETY OF WORK!! I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with this special quilt. PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS!!
