Vintage and Antique Linens by Em's Heart

Antique Marseilles or Matelasse Victorian Coverlet

Item Number S11305

Every so often something comes along that takes my breath away... This definitely stopped me in my tracks!  Lily of the Valley and lilies form the central medallion of this marvelous antique Victorian coverlet.  White cotton or linen blend, it is soft and perky -- a joy to handle and to photograph! 

The center panel is surrounded by the classic repeating pattern of evenly spaced posies all the way around.  There is one tiny light oxidation dot to speak of, shown below, as well as a few broken stitches in the hems (2 places, about an inch each).  I've not seen one with this pattern -- Lily of the Valley and lilies --might it have been purchased by an "L"??  White and bright as the day it was made.  Freshly laundered and pressed and in excellent condition. c.1890  86" X 86"
