Queen Elizabeth Matelasse Bedspread

$ 225.00



The Queen Elizabeth Bedspread was first introduced by Bates in 1953, in commemoration of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. The design was also inspired by an intricate quilt originating from the Elizabethan Era, so the name was fitting in more ways than one.

This vintage-inspired matelassé bedspread was the first of its kind to be woven on a mechanical loom, and it has been in continuous production for over 60 years (second in age only to the our classic Martha Washington’s Choice Bedspread).

This cotton matelassé bedspread commands attention with an elegant center medallion and structured framework surrounded by soft florals. The iconic design has also been known in the past as the "Elizabethan Court."

Very Pleased

The bedspread is exactly as expected as it's very well made, fits the bed perfectly, and the color matches that shown on screen. I've gotten my money's worth and more. Thank you Bates Mill Store!

Years ago, my mother gave me a bedspread such as this. I’m not sure what happened to it but I’ve always tried to replicate it. I fumbled across your website, read reviews and had to have one. The price was difficult but I made it work. It is absolutely the finest bedspread I have ever had. The quality is amazingly unbelievable. I wish more people could experience this luxury. Perhaps more advertising, perhaps Amazon.
Thank you to your employees who make this happen !!
I now think of my mother every time I look at it.

Loved mine since 1971

My husband and I received a Bates Queen Elizabeth queen size in 1971 as a wedding gift. It, and our marriage, have lasted ever since. Our is the antique color. Love, love, love it.


This is probably the fifth Bates bedspread I’ve had and it’s the second Queen Elizabeth spread for me. It is beautiful. My bed is a full size but sits higher off the ground. We ordered the queen size and it fits perfectly. It’s hard to describe the quality of these spreads to someone who hasn’t seen one but I've never been disappointed. Thank you so much!

I can finally get a good nights sleep!

We moved to a new home a year ago. I’ve had trouble sleeping and feeling at home overnight. Before we moved, our bed was adorned with a beautiful 50 year old QE bedspread that my mom received for her 25th anniversary. Because it had a maroon background, much to my dismay, this stunning bedspread. did not go with my new decor. After trying other solutions, I decided to get this in Antique. We put it on our bed yesterday and sleeping underneath it was so familiar and cozy that we finally feel at home. Who would have thought that the problem was not having a beautiful Bates bedspread. Thank you. It was worth the wait.
