Customer Question
I am now the...

I am now the caretaker of a coverlet that belonged to my Grandmothers family. They had 2 treasures passed down 1 the family Bible and 2 this coverlet. My gramma was born in 1899. Her father was born in 1875. I get the feeling that it might have been made before 1875.

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

Is there anyway I can send you photos? I’m curios how old it may be and where it came from. It does not look Native American. I am mostly Irish and German. It looks as if it could be from Sweden.
