Antique Crazy Quilt Textile


Absolutely stunning antique Crazy Quilt, dated 1886. Although there is quite a bit of distress throughout the piece, the colors have remained super bright and vivid. Most of the fabrics are silk, satin, or velvet with intricate embroidery throughout. You will find embroidered images of a lobster, spiderweb, bunny, bat, cat, parrot, flowers, scales, butterflies, leaves, and much more! The backing is gold satin and the rich colors and chaotic patterns have a hypnotic effect. You will get lost studying the handwork on this incredible piece. It would make a perfect wall hanging as it is too precious and delicate to be a functional piece. There are many areas where the fabric is tattered, but it does not detract from the overall beauty of this time capsule. I’ve tried to photograph multiple sections of the quilt, but feel free to reach out with questions. This piece is being sold as is and is final sale.
