Boro futon Cover

4,000.00

An excellent boro futon cover

* From the collection of Stephen Szczepanek

 

ERA

Mid to Late 19th century

 

DESCRIPTION

This is a good-sized section of an excellent quality indigo dyed cotton boro futon cover. This piece belongs entirely to the mid to late 19th century. Age is among the most important characteristics when considering a boro piece: it was in the 19th century that all the cloth components of this futon cover were hand woven from hand spun cotton yarns, and it was then when the futon cover was hand stitched in the form it is now. Important to note is another prime criterion for judging an excellent old boro piece: this futon cover shows hemp stitching which indicates good age.
