This is an American, antique quilt made circa 1930s-1940s. It is the traditional Jacob's Ladder quilt pattern. This piece has exceptional dense and double hand quilting throughout. It is also meticulously hand sewn. This is a technically superb quilt. The maker was a master. It is in excellent condition. There is one area of staining on the inside lapel which you can see in the video at the end of the listing. The quilt is made with very luxe, soft cotton. In our opinion, this quilt is thin, light weight, with an excellent drape and a little loft (puffiness). Please note the lemony custard fabric on the back of the quilt (inside of the jacket). 

  • This jacket features side slits for generous movement and a beautiful drape.
  • This jacket has two clear snaps at the tips of the collar that secure the lapel if desired.
  • This jacket has two pockets.
  • Fold the architectural collar down to create a lapel if desired.
  • The Helen Jacket has a generous fit and is not meant to have a tailored look.
  • One Size Fits Most

Please note that all of our jackets are made from antique quilts and the fabric reflects this. Our fabrics are sometimes older than 100 years old and are perfectly worn. We believe this is what makes them special and is part of their charm. All of our garments are pre-washed in a special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
