Stunning Classic William Morris Linens Patchwork Throw

Product ID: T162

A really gorgeous patchwork throw/bedcover, in rich, deep hues, in original condition. This lovely throw is a beautifully conceived and composed arrangement of a vast array of richly patterned and coloured cotton/linen squares, of William Morris / Sanderson prints. A classic, original decorative piece hand crafted in beautiful hues for the period/vintage modern home. The work of many many hours of patient and skilled, loving labour, this is a lovely piece of hand sewing to be cherished for years to come.

The throw is composed of over 500 squares, edged to three sides by a fringed burgundy braid, and measures approximately 214cm by 138cm (75ins. x 54ins.). It is shaped at one end, please see pictures, but is generous enough to make a fabulous throw for anything from a sofa or armchair to a bed. Of the 500 plus patchwork pieces just two have partial tears/wear-though they do not detract from the beauty of this lovely piece in our opinion. Indeed, the previous life of this item goes to make up a home with a heart. The throw is backed with a light blue fabric which is watermarked in places and through use, which could easily be laundered, but nothing which shows to the front. The upper side is still quite vividly coloured. The patchwork has been finished by hand stitched quilting. 

A wonderfully sumptuous hand quilted patchwork throw to give any room a richly decorative heart. Versatile, useful and beautiful! The stuff of heirlooms.
