Collectible Chenille Bedspreads of Yesteryear


Do you have a childhood memory of a chenille bedspread? My own recollection is of taking a long summer’s nap on top of my grandmother’s bed which was covered by a chenille bedspread. I woke up to find the impression of the floral design all over my hands and face.

All three of the beds in her house were draped with a chenille bedspread. Little did I know at that time that this particular type of bed cover had it’s own place in American history and would be valued by collectors in years to come. is dedicated to that memory and to all of you who appreciated these works of art.
