Description

*New for 2024* Celebrate your love and appreciation for Amish quilts with LancasterHistory’s latest Esprit Quilt ornament. The square ornament features four quilts from the Esprit Quilt Collection, photographed in 2001 for a collection of USPS postage stamps.

Doug Tompkins, co-founder of Esprit de Corp (Esprit Clothing), assembled a large collection of Amish quilts made in Lancaster County between 1880 and 1950. These quilts were later donated to the Heritage Center Museum, which later became part of the historic collections at LancasterHistory. Today, LancasterHistory cares for and preserves the quilts.

Ornament is ~ 3.25 x 3.x25 inches square and made out of a silver metal by The Charleston Mint. Quilt descriptions are printed on the back. Ornament comes in a box and a black ribbon for hanging. (Hanger in product picture not for sale or included in purchase.)
