Description

Our spirited scarf celebrates an extraordinary American quilt (ca. 1875) in The Met collection, which was originally made by Ernestine Eberhardt Zaumseil (American, born Germany, 1828–1904). It bears the Tree of Life pattern, a popular bedcover design since the seventeenth century.

The first such bedcovers, called palampores, were from India and featured fantastic stylized trees. In Zaumseil's quilt, the foliage is more realistic than in the Indian versions. She seems to have traced actual leaves and vines for her appliquéd designs; the central "tree" is taken from grapevine leaves, and maple and beech leaves can also be clearly identified.
