Dana Auctions October 2021 Textile Sale
Antique Ocean Waves quilt, circa 1890s, from Lehigh, Pennsylvania. It measures 86 by 86 inches. Very graphic punch with its Turkey red border and red solid center squares. There is also a 1.25 wide chrome yellow border. Aside from the obvious Turkey red fabric, the other fabrics include neons, double pink, Lancaster blue, stripes, indigos, solids, and more. It is hand and machine pieced, hand quilted at 7 spi. It was finished by bringing the top red border fabric over to the back and hand stitched. The backing is a pieced double pink and overdyed green bars backing. Workmanship is primitive. Condition is good, a few seams have come undone and should be restitched. A few small spots.
