Antique French Bedspread Pique Quilt
This antique French quilt has been hand stitched to perfection. White linen has been used on each side of the quilt and the edges are trimmed with a white crocheted cotton border. In very good condition, this is an a unusual find with a loop on each corner of the quilt, which indicates that perhaps it was used as a canopy over a bed rather than on the bed. This piece dates from the mid to late 1800's.
The bedspread measures 1.29m x 1.49m (51inches x 59 inches), this size includes the crochet trim which is 7cm deep (3inches).
It would sit nicely on a single bed, day bed or across the back of a sofa, It could also be used as a tablecloth.
There are a few rust marks and one barely noticeable stain on the wrong side - see the last three photos. The fifth photo shows the wrong side.
