Antique Pre-Civil War 1850 Snowball Quilt

Description: This rust and black print snowball quilt is very well preserved. One hundred and eighty-two 5″ blocks make this quilt marvelous.   It is hand pieced and quilted with 1/2″ diamond grid quilting and feather quilting adorns the border. It is void of a top border. The stitches are close and consistent, 8 stitches to the inch.  The hand stitched binding is rolled over from the back and the batting is thin. 100% cotton.

Condition: It is in very good condition. Strong, sturdy and clean overall. Three brown spots are present on the front of the quilt. (Please see photos).The white on the quilt is showing signs of age with some discoloration on the front and back. I have attached a photo of an example of the discoloration. The back also has some brown spots and light foxing.
