Tiffany Art Glass Vase, c. 1900. Pulled feather pattern. Perfect condition. 7 inches tall. Marked LCH.
Lovely French opaline box. The thick-walled, hinged, rectangular form with bevel-cut corners has very crisply detailed, gilded mounts. Paw feet support the elegant example. Made in France circa 1900. 4 3/8" H., 3 5/8" W., 5 3/8" L.
A boxwood netsuke of a lotus leaf with naturalistically-detailed veining and worm holes. For contrast, the sculptor created a representation of a kappa/water sprite in ceramics, a source of dramatic interest as the little creature peeps out from the folds of the wood lotus. Carved seal of “Kan” (Ritsuo) on nether side. Overall excellent condition.

This is an amazing original paint decorated small table top storage box. It is in a bold red paint with olive green edges and yellow pin striping that looks like it was done by a schooled wagon painter. It is untouched original paint. It is 8" wide by 6" tall and is 5 3/4" deep, about the size of a small lunch box. It has tiny T nails and beaded lid top. The latch is a later addition and maybe the handle but probably no later than 1840.
This is a great little box with unbelievable paint...
This very nice early doll has an ink drawn face with a leather body and wooden arms. She has on a black silk dress that is all hand sewn. Her face is nicely drawn including ears! Her hair is also ink drawn in a very folky manner. She is just 4" long and is 5 1/2" if you measure to the end of her skirt. She is so early and so nice. Because she is so small you don't see her face nearly as close as the camera gets so her features are not as exaggerated. Circa 1860
A very sweet early flannel rabbit with great circle eyes, red lined ears, and green fabric lettuce in her mouth. She has her original pink collar around her neck. She is plump and very firmly stuffed and has the cutest little rabbit tail. I don't think she has been played with but she does have age related discoloration to the surface of the flannel. She is a gem! C. 1880 and is 6" long by 4" tall and 4" wide.
This is a really big cloth doll all hand sewn, stuffed firmly with rags (she is very heavy), has mitten hands so her thumbs are separate and her fingers are stitch defined. She has been recovered and repaired lots of times but are very old, no new sewing. She is wearing red and cream antique calico dress that probably was a child's dress and a pinafore over it and a brown tiny checked bonnet. Her legs are continuous with her body but she sits easily...
This unusual applique quilt is made up of graceful floral clusters with two red birds perched on each. The stems support both buds and open flowers. What makes this quilt even more out of the ordinary are the eight lobed medallions placed throughout that are surrounded by arced circles for want of a better term. It is nicely quilted with diagonal lines. The quilt is in excellent, probably unwashed condition. Measurements are 78" square; made circa 1860's.
A baluster-shaped bronze and multi-metal vase on pedestal base with two oval-shaped cartouches executed in high relief shakudo, shibuichi and copper. Brocading along the lip and foot depicts sprays of plum blossom and clam shells among stylized waves. On one side, a nocturnal scene of an owl perches on a leafy branch, a shakudo crescent moon in the background. On the other side, sparrows fly over mist-covered sakura trees. Jomi Eisuke incised signature seal on the base...
This is the most complex Carolina Lily quilt that I have ever seen. The arrangement of the densely packed Lilies creates several additional patterns. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is made with a beautiful grouping of mid 19th century printed red fabrics. The use of the Oakleaf border is an interesting choice. It is as bold as the body of the quilt.
Measurements are 84" x 90". Maine origin; circa 1860.
