One important part of appraising a quilt or any textile is accurate dating. Sometimes there is no doubt of the date, because the maker embriodered it onto the quilt or wrote it somewhereon the back in indelible ink. Sometimes a quilt was so obviously designed for a special occasions — such as the Century. Cotton Patchwork Quilt, Dutch, ca. Art on Indulgy.
Vintage and antique quilts serve as handsome decorating pieces, particularly in older or historical homes. If you've found or purchased a quilt, you may want to know when or where it was made. It's tough to accurately date a quilt unless you're an antiques appraiser, but by looking for a few clues, you can deduce its general age. Vintage quilts were made from the s to , while quilts deemed antique date back to years ago or more. A quilt made in the s or earlier is also considered antique.
