Brown check woven coverlet in three sections with with hand-tied fringe on two sides.
This coverlet descended in the Bardin family and was made using cotton grown at the plantation of David Bardin (1811-1875) in Wayne County, North Carolina. The 1850 census shows that Bardin owned three slaves. The cotton for the coverlet was probably woven into the brown checked pattern and stitched together by his wife, Emily (Persons) Bardin (1814-1873).
Gift of Mr. Karl Richardson Bardin
