QUILLING


Quilling, or paper filigree, is thought to date back to the 15th Century.  Italian and French nuns were the first to make these delicate designs of rolled paper.  They cut narrow strips of paper with gold edging from book pages and rolled them on feather quills.  Shaping them into various rolls and scrolls, the nuns created ornate borders for their religious pictures and articles.

During the 18th Century Quilling became a popular art form for fashionable young ladies in England.  It was taught, along with needlework and other handwork, and encouraged as a proper pastime for their leisure hours.  Coats of Arms and a variety of pictures were made with quilling and it was also used to decorate tea cadies, trays, cribbage boards, boxes and even furniture.  Some examples of this period may be found in the London Museum and in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Quilling spread from England to the American colonies and seemed to be most popular in the New England area.  Many of the surviving pieces of quillwork were done on candle sconces.  Often the quilling was combined with shells, wax flowers, twisted wire and mica, which gave a sparkling effect to the whole design in the candlelight.
