Traditional Welsh Quilts for Sale

A customer has decided that the time has come to part with two Old Welsh Quilts that were made by her  mother-in-law in the early 1930's and has asked us if we can find anyone who would like to buy them.

Her husbands family lived in Neath and the black quilt,, which measures 93"x 76" was made for her husband when he was a small child, but has never been used.

The gold quilt, which has  some lovely traditional Welsh patterns, measures 79"x 87".  Both quilts have a paisley print on the back.

Our customer has been to see Jen Jones from the Welsh Quilt Centre in Lampeter, to get a valuation for the quilts and Jen has valued the gold quilt for £180.00 to £200.00 and the black quilt for over £200.00.
If you are interested in buying the quilts or would just like to see them, come into the shop and have a word with Sue, who will be happy to show you the quilts and tell you more of their history.
