Pots of Flowers Stuffed Appliqué Quilt: Circa 1850


Regular price$34,000.00

This four block Pots of Flowers quilt is over the top both in terms of design and execution. The flowers; leaves; stems and chain sashing are all heavily stuffed appliqué. Finely detailed embroidery outlines the appliqué. Exuberant does not begin to describe the dense design that is so full it has something of an abstract look.

The quilt has similarities to the work of Baltimore quilt maker known as Designer Three. Her quilts, as well as this piece, are intense in design and padded appliqué.
Unfortunately, this quilt came only with the background information that it had been in a DuPont Family collection. The place of origin is unknown but it is not much of a stretch to believe that it originated in Baltimore, just south of Delaware.

Condition is excellent which is most unusual with such heavily padded appliqué. The chain grid has been seen in one of Designer Three's album quilts that sold last year with an asking price of more than $200,000.
Measurements are 100 inches square. Made circa 1850.
