White linen corded bed cover with cotton back. The corded or quilted pattern was probably made with linen thread. The pattern includes a scattered floral arrangement with various flowers, leaves and stalks filling the field, and a cornucopia at each corner. The white cotton fringe attached on one end is probably original. Minor stains; ground slightly worn in spots.
