Stencilled Album Quilt: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania

Sold Out

Nineteenth-century stencilled quilts are true rarities. To find one made in the early 20th century is virtually unheard of. This amazing example is even more unusual for the fact that it is also an album quilt. It was made in Pennsylvania; circa 1920 during the Colonial Revival period. The soft tones reflect the popularity of light, pastel colours in decorating schemes of the era. The 72 blocks are primarily floral but they also include American eagles and owls. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is quilted with straight diagonal and wavy lines.
