This is a quilt made of 48 “silkies” - printed silk cigarette inserts from the early 20th century. These were one of the first “collect the whole series!” marketing deals, with this particular set being “famous Indians” and what looks like the very frayed Queen Victoria down at the bottom. Also known as “People We Have Tried to Kill” ? 

In auction now.
