I have no idea if it was ever washed. I assume so(??), because of its age. I can't imagine it was never used. Odds are when it was made, it was made to be used. It's now "revered" because of its age and condition (no puckering, hand-stitched, very smooth and neat). Just some dinge from age, and that spot (at least one that I found) that almost looks like a drop of tomato soup or something similar. For all I know that spot could have been there 50 years.

I suspect it is made of cotton. Most synthetics were invented after this quilt was made (I think), and it's definitely not wool. So I'm going with cotton or linen.

Safe to dry clean? Should prevent puckering or shrinkage, but maybe not appropriate for a quilt?
