Henry Clay Presentation Quilt

Henry Clay Presentation Quilt

The Henry Clay Presentation Quilt is featured in the exhibit, “Cherished Ornaments of our House: Important Personal Artifacts of Henry Clay” at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate. One of more than 165 quilts in the KYLM collection, this unique textile features a needlework portrait of our most famous Kentucky statesman as well as pastoral scenes done in crewelwork. The quilt is attributed to Clay’s wife, Lucretia.

Mounted to commemorate the completion of the book, “Henry Clay: The Essential American” by David and Jeanne Heidler, the exhibit includes numerous artifacts never before displayed at Ashland. The Henry Clay Quilt will be on exhibit at this historic Lexington home until July 9, 2010. Exhibit hours are 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday-Saturday and 1 pm-4 pm on Friday with tours occurring on the hour.
