Antique Double Irish Chain
Quilter: Elizabeth Ralph
Size: 72 x 85 inches (Double/Full Size)
Description: 130 years old - signed and dated (white-on-white) on the back: Mattie Akard June 12, 1884. n - During the nineteenth century the color was referred to as “chrome orange” or “antimony”. (Unusual color combination -Yellow/Orange). Very typical of the period, this pattern has been popular over the years and it leaves a nice solid space between the chains to display the maker's needlework skills. Note the consistency in the beautiful triple clam-shell design in the white spaces which is very desirable in 19th century quilts. Parallel rows of quilting are used through the chain. The front is turned back to hem which was a prevalent practice in the South and for a quilt of this period.
The quilt has had moderate use, but is in excellent condition. Evaluated and authenticated by a well-known textile artist and founding member of the American Quilt Study Group (AQSG).
