This navy and gray example of the Twenty-Five Snowballs coverlet pattern is a classic, from the color choice to the intricate border design.
This is one of two coverlets donated to the local “Angels in the Attic” thrift store in 2013. The only information was a “circa 1800s”note attached to the coverlet. An article about the coverlets was published in the May 23, 2013 Floyd Press but the donor did not come forward.
