This incomplete piece, perhaps intended as a table cover or runner, is constructed of hexagons in English paper-piecing style. The chintz fabrics are a vibrant record of the 1830 - 1840 era. The two pheasants appliquéd in the center are cut out from a chintz fabric. The maker of this unusual piece is unknown.
