antique quilt

This is the info and pictures of the antique dutch quilt
my famely owns.
The quilt is dated about 1610
the center is an antique "sits" or "palempore"
imported by the VOC( east india company)
from INDIA at the end of the 16th century.

the size is 183x170 cm (72x67inch)
the condition is not so good anymore, but still it is beautiful.
In the quiltmania number 71 you see him in the hanging in my house see
my blog 9 may 2009.

In the new book of An Moonen page 158 you see the quilt also.
We hope the book will be in english see her website

This is the back of the quilt.
