One of the very best pieces of its kind we’ve ever had, whether a fragment or a complete quilt. This fragment was taken from a large crazy quilt, the rest of which was beyond repair. Mtade of plush velvets, silk satin ribbons and floss. There are blocks of cut velvet, of patterned velvet and there is the finest needlework I’ve seen in a long time. The initials W G are embroidered in gold. The piece has a polished cotton backing. This fragment is a good size and could be used for any number of sewing / artistic crafts. What a front it would make for a cloth carry-all bag, and imagine it as a table mat! In splendid condition.  Edwardian era.  30” X 19”
