Name: Stuffed Corded Trapunto Coverlet
Dimensions: 96" x 86"
Date made: 1820 - 1840
Date Acquired: 1955
RMSC Accession#: 1955

This finely stitched white work coverlet was made around 1820 based on the style and exquisite workmanship. The maker is unknown. The history associated with this quilt places it in upstate New York in recent generations, but it may have a Connecticut area origin; more historical investigation needs to be done with this significant piece.

The pattern of trapunto motifs, which includes a center medallion flower bouquet surrounded by oak leaves, twining grape vine with fruit and serpentine feathered patterns, is believed to be unique and original.
