DQ181 Victorian Silk & Silk Velvet Doll Quilt
13 1/2 x 13 1/2 (34.3 x 34.3 cm)
All original with a red silk backing and a very nice yellow silk ribbon used as a binding which is hand stitched down front and back in tiny, neat stitches. This lovely little doll quilt was probably made by a mother for her child from a left over crazy quilt block. In near perfect condition front and back, the only thing we find amiss is a slight discoloration on one side to the yellow silk ribbon which can be seen in the photo above. The embellishment stitching is executed in silk by an experienced hand and there is no thinning, fraying or tears to the silk and silk velvet patches. There are even some basting stitches remaining from the original construction. Neither quilted nor tied.
