A woven doublecloth coverlet made by Archibald Davidson in 1838 in the Colonial Williamsburg archives (object #1978.609.1) inspired the design of this WILLIAMSBURG Vintage Vinyl Floorcloth by Spicher & Co. In 1831, Scottish-born Archibald Davidson advertised himself as a "Fancy Weaver" working in his shop east of Ithaca, New York. In addition to weaving coverlets, Davidson custom-dyed wool yarns and wove other textiles such as carpets and sheeting. Like Davidson, most New York weavers came from the British Isles where they wove coverlets in the double weave structure. Patriotic, historical, or Masonic themes are often seen on New York coverlets, reflecting the sentiments of both weaver and client. The bottom border of the coverlet features Capitol domes and American spread eagles beneath banners proclaiming "E Pluribus Unum" translated as "Out of many, one."
