Name: Half Round Trapunto Table Cover
Dimensions: 36 ?" Diameter
Date made: Early 19th Century
Date Acquired: 1962
RMSC Accession#: 62.425.2

This exquisitely stitched table cover came to the Museum through the Barry family of Rochester, NY, descendents of Patrick Barry, founding partner of the Ellwanger-Barry nursery and seed company.

The maker is unknown, but the technique and fabrics date the table cover to the first quarter of the 19th Century. The beautiful pattern is outlined with exceptionally fine hand backstitching which could easily be mistaken for machine work.
