Corner blocks reads, JOHN HAM / ELTON / JACKSON T. / NORTHUM / BERLAND / COUNTY / 1840 P.A.N.
John Hamelton according to recorded coverlets, was a weaver in Machenoy, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania in 1836. From 1839 to 1844, he relocated to Jackson Township. The meaning of the P.A.N. in the corner blocks is a mystery.
This fine example having more decorative elements such as the bird motif surpasses this makers other coverlet designs. Condition is very good with minimalistic small stains that appear at random along with whispers of light toning. There is some expected fringe loss but the colors are vibrant without any fading to report. No holes are present.
