35 x 47 inches
New England

Bird of Paradise Palm Tree fragment. The copper plate printed fabric is called "Isolated Islands". We know it dates from c.1815 because this fabric is featured in "English and American Textiles From 1790 to the Present" by Schoeser and Rufey. The binding fabric comes from the original quilt. It is in almost perfect condition. This is a very rare and special piece.
