This comes straight from the age of flower power! The bedspread has a lovely selection of fabrics from the 60s and early 70s - mostly cotton, but also a with some cotton mixes. It is beautifully handsewn and backed with a pale peach cotton.
It is enormous - I have displayed it here on my king size bed and it hangs over each side - I guess it would hang close to the floor on a normal double.
Each hexagon has been hand sewn together in a lovely bright floral effect pattern which stands out against the darker background. It's rather reminiscent of Mary Quant.
Above is the centre of the bedspread.
And here are a few close ups to show the lovely bright vintage fabrics.
And below is the full effect.
Isn't it fabulous - a truly unique vintage item.
Condition: There are no holes, rips or loose seams - the bedspread is generally in good condition. There are just a couple of minor flaws - two of the hexagon flowers (redish shades) have a small amount of colour run from the dark background, which are not really noticeable except on close inspection. There is a thin line of colour run along one edge of the backing - for approx. 6 inches.
Dimensions: 93.5 inches x 86 inches or 237cm x 219cm
Postage by DHL to most UK addresses would be £15 - for overseas or non mainland addresses, please email me for a quote.
It can also be collected from my shop in Farnham.

1930s Oak Writing Bureau with Bun Feet
This characterful piece of furniture is painted in Farrow and Ball's eco friendly eggshell using the colours "Bone" and "Pointing" - nice neutral colours which should fit with most colour schemes. It has a lightly distressed finish which gives it an easy to live with appearance.
This is such a functional piece of furniture as it has masses of storage in the drawers, plus the really useful desk part which is great for laptop use. So if you are tight on space, this piece can double up as a chest of drawers AND a desk - how great is that? (Little Thing 2 has a similar bureau in her bedroom, and loves it.)
