Antique Whitework Candlewick Bedspread 1874 measuring 64×91 inches. Laura Fisher describes this textile on her website as: “White embroidery in raised dimension accentuates the aspen(?)leaves on chain stitched slender branches. Signed Z. Huston in lower right corner, dated 1874. Such embroidery candlewicks usually emerge from New England in the earlier 19th century; don’t know locale of this lovely example, | but still it is an uncommon find. Details are mirror imaged across the entire center so can be used horizontally or vertically.” Additionally, there is an APP 71 embroidered below the name and date. It is in good condition with several small holes, some edge wear, a small separation in the center seam, and small spots. I also noted 2 repairs. This item was part of Laura Fisher’s estate.
