1869 Jacquard Coverlet with George Washington Busts "Philip Schum" Signed and Dated

1869-Dated, "Philip Schum" Signed and Dated, Jacquard Coverlet featuring Bust of George Washington, Lancaster, PA, Choice Very Fine.

This vibrant red, green, blue, and tan Jacquard Coverlet measures 80" x 75" and features large busts of George Washington and horses, birds, and flowers. "MADE BY PHILIP SCHUM. LANCASTER. PA", identified in several places throughout the coverlet. Coverlet has a fringe running along three sides, though a few bits are missing; in addition there are two stains, (one of them pink) and a hole. However, given that this textile is 140 years old it has been remarkably well preserved.

This Jacquard Coverlet design is pictured in the book "Coverlets" by Melinda Zongor and Joseph D. Shein, pages 214 and 215. This Coverlet is in very good condition, with colors that are bright, with no fading or significant staining or discoloration. There is a small area of wear on the dark side in the area of the central medallion and more significant wear along on edge in the area of the makers signature and some trivial loss to the original fringe edging. The light background side shows much less wear than the dark background side with no wear in the central medallion and only light wear noticeable at the edge. A rare and highly attractive 1869 Woven, 4-Color Jacquard Coverlet that is excellent for display.
