From the late Victorian or early 1900's, a pretty white cotton Matelasse, Marcella or Counterpane bedspread cover woven in a raise design. Which ever name to want to call these covers matelasse, marcella or counterpane, they all imply the top cover of the bed. 

Made for a standard or double bed, the size is 97-1/2" long x 90" wide, rectangle in shape with straight corners (no curves).  

Laid out in a lovely design of borders, each features a different style of scrolls, floral and leaves.  Overall look is so.... romantic.  

The outer most border are of leaves with a geometric flare.  This border is 14-1/2" wide.  Next to it is a 1" wide Greek Key border.  The first inner border beyond the Greek Key, is another scrolls of leaves.  This area is 13" wide. 

2nd row is flowers and scrolls with the area measuring 11-1/2" wide.  The center of the spread is filled with a pretty medallion measuring 14" x 18".  In other words, almost the entire area of the cover is filled with beautiful designs.  

Condition:  Freshly laundered.  It has been used and although gently for the last 20 years on a spare bed, it does show some wear and tear to the edge at the top edge.  Less at the bottom edge. (see photos).  Also a couple small frays but minor.  Even with the wear, I would consider good.

I have enjoyed it and now it is time for someone else to do so.
