This gorgeous mostly-silk quilt (cotton backing) likely dates back to the 1880's. Women's Christian Temperance Union inscriptions give evidence to its origins. The WCTU is the oldest voluntary, non-sectarian woman's organization in continuous existence in the world.

It is easy to imagine the creators of this quilt discussing ways to establish their rights--the right to vote, women's rights in the workplace, the eight-hour day, etc. All actions for which they are given credit.

The quilt is in very good condition--the silk is frayed in some areas at the edges; the center is intact. The hand tied backing has a few discolored areas; otherwise perfect. This quilt will come wrapped first around a cotton sheet and then around a sturdy cardboard tube before being enclosed in a custom zippered cotton case (please see final photo). This is the way it has been stored--no plastic and no fold lines.
