VICTORIAN PATRIOTIC FOLK ART QUILT – A truly exceptional piece of 19th
century British Empire patriotic folk art, this quilt is purported to
have been made from fragments of fine melton wool from British army
tunics. It features bold red, white and blue colours and is dated 1891,
at the center panel a large heart with the royal monogram "VR" for
Victoria Regina. The quilt is an impressive 75" x 96" and can easily
cover a Queen size bed. It is backed with a floral patterned fabric.
Unquestionably a unique piece and one that spans multiple collecting
categories, including quilts, militaria, royalty, and folk art.
Condition is excellent. 75”x96”.
