Elizabeth M. Stansbury Baltimore Album Quilt
Item Details
Description
Elizabeth M. Stansbury Appliqued Baltimore Album Quilt dated 1846, the two squares bearing penned inscriptions and one with a cross-stitched monogram "E.M.S.", w. 101", l. 101".
Condition
In washed condition, but all the fabrics appear to be stable. Some surface dirt, and some minor front staining from old water damage from underneath. The only visible losses are on one bird's legs, which are crewel, probably wool. In addition to the signature, which is possibly 1866, there is a stitched "EMS", possibly meaning that she worked the entire quilt.
