Throughout North America During the early 19th century bed coverlets were usually machine woven in either wool or cotton and were deemed to be essential household items. The Jacquard weaving system, which was introduced during this period and named after the French inventor, used punched cards to control the loom. This resulted in highly detailed designs.

Perhaps today's most collectible coverlets were produced by Harry Tyler (1801-1858) who emigrated from England to establish his weaving business in Jefferson County, New York.  His distinctive mark was an unmistakable "chunky" lion. It is to "Tyler's Lion" that this sampler is dedicated. Julia Line
