Item details

PLEASE BE SURE to click on “+MORE” below the first few sentences TO SEE THE FULL DESCRIPTION.

This listing is for a 23-inch by 20-inch of a beautiful garnet red and ivory late-1800s handwoven jacquard overshot coverlet. Details are:

~ The entire piece is shown in the 2nd photo. The 23-inch width is the original woven width of the panel, so the two shorter edges have the original woven finish. I serged (overcast) the two longer sides to prevent unraveling. So, all four edges are finished, at least roughly.

~ The piece is made of garnet (dark) red and ivory wool and ivory linen. The wool may be lambswool, because it is fairly soft.

~ As with all linsey woolsey coverlets, the piece is reversible. The 3rd photo shows both sides together.

~ I found no flaws or blemishes on the piece.

~ The combination of wool and linen in this type of coverlet led to them being called "linsey woolsey." "Overshot" refers to the style of weaving. This particular coverlet fabric is a substantial weight (not thin).

~ I gently hand-washed and soaked this coverlet in special soap and line dried it. I took great care so the fibers would not shrink or pull together, as can happen if a coverlet like this is washed. The result is a clean, beautiful, piece of fabric that can be used as is for display (table cover, photo backdrop, etc.) or for many different special projects, including a pillow.

Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I am always happy to provide additional information about my listings.

On purchases of multiple items, Etsy calculates combined shipping when purchases are made on the same invoice (all items in a cart at once), but the amount is not always correct. I refund shipping overcharges of more than $1.00 immediately following shipment.

If a buyer wishes to have an order shipped to an address other than the buyer's address, the shipping address must be entered during the checkout process. Specifying a different address by convo or message is not sufficient to permit me to ship to that address. If an address changed is requested, I will refund and cancel the order, and ask the buyer to repurchase using the correct shipping address, in compliance with the Etsy Seller Protection Policy.

I no longer ship internationally to any country. Shipping is to U.S. addresses only.


I accept payment through Paypal via Paypal balance, credit card, or direct bank transfer, or through Etsy payments. I do not accept eCheck payments. I do not offer layaway services or installment payment plans.

Returns & exchanges

I accept returns only if I have made a mistake in the listing or an item otherwise is not as described in the listing, as long as the return is postmarked within 3 business days of receipt and is returned in exactly the same condition as it was received. The buyer must contact me prior to returning any item. Refunds will be issued after the item has been returned.

Additional policies

All of my listings are sold on a first come, first served basis. I do not "hold" or "reserve" items for purchase at a later time.

My prices are the same for everyone. I do not add a cushion to prices to allow for negotiating price or provide for free shipping. I treat all buyers the same and keep my prices as low as possible for everyone, rather than negotiating special prices for individual buyers.

Reviews are a valuable resource for both sellers and buyers. I rely on my reputation to inform new buyers about the quality of my products and level of customer service. If ever there is any kind of concern or issue with a purchase, please contact me prior to leaving a review with less than 5 Stars, so that I may remedy the situation.

I sincerely appreciate my customers who take the time to leave reviews and share their experiences with other Etsy buyers.
