   Silk Tumbling Blocks


This dramatic silk tumbling block quilt is an artistic masterpiece. Picture this quilt hanging in a great room or stairwell. In order for the blocks to be upright, it needs to be hung vertically. If horizontal, the quilt becomes a sea of stars. The sides of the triangles are 1-3/4 inches. An optical illusion, it appears to be stacks of blocks pulsating when put in the proper light. It is comprised of silks dating from 1800 to c.1840 and created in Harvard, MA. The name of the well renowned family will be given at the sale.The name of the well renowned family will be given at the sale.
