Tobacco Flannels Quilt Top SOLD

(Item: QT-780)

Offering this extraordinary antique quilt top made of cigarette/tobacco flannel premiums. Such a huge collection and sampling of flannel printed blocks all stitched together making a fantastic quilt top. Many of the flannels are Indian patterns and several flags, about 60, making up the center panel.  Some of the patterns symbolize Indian blankets and Oriental rugs with wonderful geometric patterns. There's a few, about 5 or so blocks near the bottom edge that have some bleeding of color. Otherwise the condition is excellent. There's approximately 235 blocks or flannels in all making up the top. A true piece of Americana and one so many collectors can enjoy and add to several categories of collecting. Massachusetts.
