A beautiful Durham whole cloth quilt with history. Fresh to market.
This is a beautiful Durham whole cloth quilt in soft pink and off white. It is entirely hand stitched. It is in beautiful condition with little/no wear of markings.

The quilt was bought from a relative of the quilter who made this in the late 19th century. It was made in the pit village of Hetton-Le-Hole in County Durham. (Durham coalfields village)

It was made as a wedding present. At the time the whole cloth fabric would have been a great expense. The patchwork quilt cloth was less expensive as it generally was off cuts or smaller pieces. The patterns in the stitching are typical of the area. There are floral wheel motifs among others.

A fantastic usable historic quilt.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
