Henry Clay Presentation Quilt - Quilt

Circa 1850 Henry Clay Presentation Quilt consisting of thirty-one celadon, salmon, and buff chintz panels that have been crewel embroidered in pastoral scenes. The focal point is the central panel, a needlework portrait of Senator Henry Clay (1777-1852) that was likely based on an 1842 portrait of the Senator by artist John Neagle. In addition to crewel embroidery, the quilt includes limited applique work in several embroidered blocks and stuffed work in the setting blocks. Oral tradition holds that the Clay's wife made it as a gift for Maria Crittenden (abt 1797-1851), the wife of the senator's political ally, Senator John Jordan Crittenden (1787-1863).
