Delectable Mountains Quilt: Circa 1870;Pennsylvania   $1,275   

Delectable Mountains is always a desirable quilt pattern and particularly when it is done in indigo and white. This example is unusual for having the sawtooth border on only two sides.

Condition is excellent. Measurements are 82" x 92". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870's.
