Best described here by our photo illustrations, this 40 X 34 inch bolt end linen remnant remains in attractive, untouched and entirely original just as it was folded and put away decades ago. With good age and color, that distinctive texture and weave produced by the narrow 40 inch wide 19th century textile loom, and with the rarely surviving bolt – end * Continental Soldier with CONTINENTAL SHEETING textile stamp this textile remnant will make a nice addition to any antique textile collection or would serve well as a backdrop to any number of collectable categories from the late 1840s through the Civil War era and on into the late 1870s.
* As the finished textile sheet passed from the loom it was wound on a shaft to form a roll or bolt as it was referred to in the industry. The exposed sheet end or bolt end received a stamped or stenciled mill marking to identify the mill product and grade. As the large textile rolls were later formed into traditional flat bolts for sale, the printed sheet end was removed and was most frequently recycled back into the manufacturing process or sold for reuse in paper manufacturing. This rare, seldom surviving remnant of that process is believed to have originally emanated from the Bates Textile Mill (a major supplier to the Civil War effort) in Lewiston, Maine.
