Late 19thC Nursery Print Toile Feather Bed Cover
Isn't the fabric from which this old duvet cover is made charming? Such a
lovely vignette of three children on their way to school in colors of red and
blue on a white ground.
Measuring 56 inches wide by 72 inches long, the length is seamed together to
reflect the 36 inch length selvage to selvage of the fabric. It appears this
may have been a knotted duvet cover as, if you look closely in one or two of
the photos, you can seem remnants of a yarn tie.
Condition is very good with no holes or rips, and the colors are nice and
bright. The fabric has been washed a time or two so the sizing is gone.
It's a lovely piece for a child's bed, or to be used as a back drop for a
collection of old toys and the foibles of childhood.
