was too difficult to transport. Most Coverlets were made by
weavers who traveled and made in 2 pieces because the smaller frames
were easier to haul.

Questions or information. I liquidate and buy local estates, all items are
sold in as found condition. I DO NOT CUSTOMIZE, REFINISH, OR
REPAIR. Most of my items are ANTIQUE, VINTAGE, OR COLLECTIBLES
with patina and may naturally show some wear from age and use. Many
people prefer the pieces with the original patina. Any cleaning, if desired, is
left up to the new owner. I have endeavored to photograph and accurately
describe every item as to its condition and authenticity. More Photos are
available to serious buyers and collectors.
Photographs are part of the description.
