Although Victorian, this loomed bedspread or blanket would be lovely displayed in a Colonial home setting. This very interesting pattern of stripes, square and a tiny diamond shape, is made in three sections. It is hand stitched over the top edge of the spread on all sides. Made of cotton, in an off white, ivory or ecru color. The spread is quite heavy. It was purchased years ago in northern Ohio.
Each width measures 24-3/4" wide, with each width hand stitched to the next. The weave of the back of the spread is entirely different than the front, giving the appearance of two separate fabrics, although it is of one. Almost like a knitted pattern in a layered affect. A gorgeous hand crochet lace, filled with three rows of chevron stitch, is then terminated in a deep point. Very impressive.
Size is 74-1/2" wide x 95" long, which does not include the crochet work. The width of the crochet is 7" wide.
Condition: As with many old antique textiles, you will find some oxidation. Although for the age, this piece has relatively minor spots.
