An Extraordinary Victorian Crazy Quilt
This magnificent large Victorian Crazy Quilt is a superb example
of the tremendous skill and patience of Victorian needlewomen.
The variety of techniques used give visual interest and depth
to this piece. Silk and velvet are used extensively. The larger
sections are decorated with fancy and simple embroidery, appliqué,
and painted designs. Most of the segments are embellished with
floral designs although there are also birds and butterflies.
As is common with textiles of this period some of the silk sections
are starting to deteriorate. Most of these pieces are on the edge
and are inconspicuous. The piece measures approximately 60"w
x 60"h. Condition is fine overall. (Stock number 002tx905a)
