Coverlet

Date Made

Summary

A coverlet is a decorative bedcovering--usually made of cotton and wool--woven on a loom. This "Peace and Plenty" coverlet expresses the optimism of a young America. This popular sentiment and the bird-and-bush Pennsylvania German border motif were used by a number of coverlet weavers, but were combined with different centerfield designs.
