Q8775 Red, Ecru and Green Overshot Coverlet

Mid 19th Century
70 x 84 inches (plus 5" fringe on three sides)

A very rare and unusual color combination...Woven in the mid 19th century ironically created using colors that are very much today's palate. This intricate overshot coverlet looks to be in hardly used condition. The ecru threads are linen, the green and red threads are wool... possibly home spun. I can’t imagine how long it took to loom this piece. It was definitely created for warmth by a master weaver. The fringe is sewn on separately so it can be removed if desired or leaving the top of the bed without fringe to tickle you. Will fit a twin, double or queen size bed, a throw for a king size bed or a cuddly throw on your couch.......A stunning piece! I have organically hand washed this coverlet and it is now ready for your inspection,
