This is an American Antique quilt made circa 1890's-1920. This is a quintessential Crazy Quilt, also referred to as a Scrap Quilt. The quilt contains homespun ginghams, men's shirt scraps and rare indigos. We have never seen a quilt signed in an extra large font like this. This piece is loaded with hand embroidery. It is absolute wearable folk art. There are a few spots throughout that we could not lift or we did not want to miss the specialness of the fabric so we included it...spots and all . We have added a visual at the end of the listing as an example. This piece also contains one tobacco flag from Brazil which we have placed on the sleeve. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, American cigarette manufacturers attempted to increase sales by offering printed fabric premiums that were designed to appeal to women. The premiums were then sewn into quilts like this one. The backing of the quilt (inside of jacket) is a blue plaid flannel, if you live in a warmer climate this may not be a good jacket for you. We have used leather buttons as closures. If you have any questions please direct message us and we are happy to bore you with many more details.

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 special restoration quilt wash. We recommend only spot cleaning if necessary.
