Rare flannel and red stripe antique welsh quilt.

SKU: TMIR000265
  • Rare flannel and red stripe antique welsh quilt.


    This is a lovely very rare example of a Welsh flannel and cotton stripe hand stitched wholecloth quilt. Circa 1910. It is hand quilted with quilting at 6 stitches to the inch. One side is an amazing Grey flannel with a soft cream stripe and the other side is a striking madder red with black stripe cotton. It has a distinctive stitched design characteristic of Aberaeron. It is truly striking.

    In exceptional condition. There is one small historical patch repair to the grey side but nothing that detracts. Infact, it only adds to its beauty. One of the nicest quilts we have come across. You simply will not come across another.
