Every effort has been made to describe our items as accurately as possible
including flaws and imperfections to the best of our ability, to give the buyer
an accurate description. I will do my best to describe major flaws and damage,
and my photographs are part of the description. I check them very carefully but
I may miss a minor spot or imperfection.
Our antique textiles are collectible items and are not new and not
reproductions, and have lived a long life with all that entails, sometimes
developing flaws. If the quilt has been laundered I will say so; I NEVER
dryclean antique textiles, and most quilts have been in storage for many
decades picking up toning and old age storage spots.
Please ask if you have any questions about condition but most antique quilts
will show some wear: they are quite old!
