White on White Candlewick Spread

I found this spread in Ohio about a year ago.  Ripped and dirty, with very worn fringe, I knew I had to rescue. In one of the photos you can see where I hand stitched and repaired the spread.  I also show the back of the spread where you get a very good look at the embroidery.  Very thick and heavy thread used to make the knots and the tufted work. The ground fabric is cotton, very heavy and strudy.  I have no idea of the date for something like this.  The fringe around 3 sides was worn and missing in most areas.  It easily broke when pulled just a little.  I chose to remove all the fringe, but I have kept an example.
