Antique Chintz Crib Quilt Circa 1820

2,350.00

What a rare treasure this is! The center is five green chintz pinwheel blocks framed by a rich chocolate brown chintz. The brown is deteriorated as was typical of the era. There is then a border of 2 1/2” chintz squares set on point. The next border is made of triangular chintzes. There is a symmetry to this border. The center two triangles on each side are the same blue, red and cheddar chintz. On either side of them are three triangles of the same greenish, golden chintz. The final border is 3 1/2” wide and is a gorgeous pillar print, predominantly blue, red and brown. The edge is the front chintz turned to the back for a very thin edge. The back is the same off white fabric that offsets the chintzes. It does have some age browning. The chintzes do still have some glaze so I would not wash this quilt. There is a piece of paper sewn to the quilt. I can make out most of it. “Old Cradle Quilt made by Miss E. J. Potts(?)” "I can’t make out the next few words and then it says “from my grandmother’s friend”. The quilt measures 48” square. Other than the brown fabric the rest of the fabrics are in excellent condition. It is hand pieced and hand quilted at 8 spi.
