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) $985.00 SOLD
