Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib Quilt: Circa 1950   $450   

Most unusual to have a genuine Lancaster County Amish Bars Crib quilt, but particularly as late as 1950. Fabrics are a combination of rayon and wool knit. Subtle, clearly intentional difference in the bars. The outer two are wider and a different fabric than the central two. Measures 29" x 34".
