Description
Fragment of a red and white; cotton and wool; 6-harness coverlet weave: "Velvet Rose," woven in Georgia.
Because of the donor, Mrs. Allen's, importance in teaching and preserving early handweaving, and the use of materials she collected in books on the subject, NMAH should keep the fragments she donated in the collection, as part of the national woven coverlet collection.
