This dark blue wool and undyed cotton double cloth coverlet is woven in two panels and seamed at the center. It has large floral medallions in the center and borders of eagles with outspread wings alternating with Masonic symbols. The eagles on the top and bottom edges are more clumsily designed than those along the right and left sides.
