This exquisite design will fit right in with Jacobean, colonial, and folk art collectors~ it's adapted from a detail on the quite famous "Mary Breed" bedspread that is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The antique bedspread in the Metropolitans's American Wing is one of the finest examples of eighteenth century crewel work. Embroidered by 19 year old Mary Breed, the original bears her signatures and is dated 1770. The Breed family was said to have lived on Breed's Hill which adjoined Bunker Hill, and was the site of the first major battle of the American Revolution.
Stitch your own piece of history~ this rare vintage circa 1973 design is still new in it's barely shopworn packaging!
