Gee's Bend Pettway Quilt Design, Covered Mug with Tea Diffuse

Regular price $28.00

The brilliant design on this mug recreates Housetop and Bricklayer with Bars (ca. 1955), a pattern by Gee's Bend quilter Lucy T. Pettway (American, 1921–2004). This exceptional textile is the only Gee's Bend quilt in the Metropolitan Musuem of Art's holdings that appears to be intentionally pictorial; Pettway has realized an imaginary aerial view of the old Pettway plantation, formerly belonging to Joseph Gee. Product produced by The Metropolitan Musuem of Art.
