"Old Alsatian Kelsch In Blue Linen And Ecru XIXth Century"Quilt cover in Alsatian kelsch, late nineteenth, sewn by hand. The top of the cover is in blue and ecru kelsch and the unbleached plain linen underside. Two cotton ribbons are sewn on each side of the opening of the cover and serve to close it. The initials of the one to whom he belonged are embroidered in red (a little pale with time) in the center of the opening. Indeed, the kelsch bedding was traditionally part of the bride's trousseau who embroidered her initials with the red thread. The connection of the seam in the middle of the cover is quite successful, with little gap between the two parts. The blue color comes from indigo. The cover can of course be used in the state as bed linen but also, by disassembling, for the decoration of your home especially for the realization of cushions. Good condition but the cover, which dates from the late nineteenth century, has served and therefore has slight traces of use, including a sewing part at the big point seems to have been redone about 30 cm (see photos). No hole or blemish, weaving is regular and the blue tile is all beauty. Many other objects to discover in my booth antique fairs in which I participate.
