Antique Ecru Red Overshot Coverlet


This hand-woven overshot coverlet has been made in two panels and sewn together. As you can see from the image the two panels do not lineup, and one is actually 3 inches longer than the other, so this could have been woven by a novice. The weaving is a combination of cotton and wool. There is some colour shift to the cotton that is more visible from the back of the item. This could be from a different dye lot. There is some distress down the centre of the piece where the stitching is marginally separated (See last photo)

Approximate size 52” x 82“
