This Delectable Mountains pattern is exquisitely quilted. It is filled with several floral and feather patterns. The curved designs of the quilting patterns are a terrific counterpoint to the sharp edges of the quilt. That fact as well as the light blue color give this very geometric pattern a soft feel. It measures 74" x 76"; outstanding condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880

For unknown reasons, the New York Beauty quilt pattern was most often made in the South. This example is no exception as it was made in Kentucky. It is a difficult pattern to execute and this is especially well pieced and quilted. It has been professionally laundered and is in very good condition. It has been laundered throughout its lifetime so the colors are a bit softer than they originated but consistently so. An old stamp on the back has the name PS Walker...

The combination of Caesar's Crown with Mariner's Compass patterns and their placement are brilliant. The central and corner block compasses draw the eye throughout the piece. The floral chintz border and pink sashing soften the geometry of the pieced patterns. Professionally laundered and in excellent condition. There is very slight toning to the back that does not show on the front. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1850. Measurements are 96" square.

A pieced and appliqued star pattern quilt variously named Ship's Wheel, Harvest Sun, Prairie Star or my favorite, Stars Upon Stars. Vibrant diamonds of red, green and white compose the stars, surrounded by an appliqued floral and vine border. A note accompanies the quilt which reads: "Made by my Grandmother Young/Sarah E. Young Born Jan 9, 1952/in Ephrata, Pa./Died April 7, 1916/at Young's Farm. Glissan's Mill Rd./Buried at Locust Grove Church...

The Ultimate Baby Gift!

Among the most treasured family heirlooms are christening clothes: the long dresses also called robes (although they're lightweight and lacy) and the heavier capes or mantles worn over them to keep the new baby warm enough. This English mantle is a spectacular example of the latter, most likely 19th century Victorian and certainly no later than Edwardian. Although at least 100 years old, it's in marvelous condition -- clear testament to how greatly it was prized...

The use of bold and original floral motifs and vivid colors and the heavy sashing characterizes quilts made in the late 19th century in North Carolina by women of German descent. However, the thistle is associated with the Scots, who comprised another large group of N.C. settlers. This quilt is a great example of the cross-pollination of quilting traditions in the Southern back country. Twelve appliqued thistles in red and dark blue are framed by blue double borders...

A visually stunning quilt with 25 pomegranates appliqued on a muslin ground. Strong symbolic meanings have been associated with the pomegranate fruit from the ancient Greeks, where they feature in the myth of Persephone, to the ancient Israelites where the fruit represented the fertility of the promised land, to early Christianity where pomegranates symbolized the fullness of Jesus's suffering. I would guess the symbolism was not lost on the Pennsylvania woman who made this quilt...

Overshot coverlet in a nice dark brown and unbleached white cotton. It is hand woven in the mid to late 1800's. I think because this is all cotton and the 1800-1840's are usually cotton warp and wool weft it makes me think this is a later version but certainly not 20th c. It is 17" by 18".This looks wonderful on an early doll bed.

This spectacular antique European evening bag has been a star of my personal collection for several decades. I don't open the private vault often, but this bag deserves to go out on the town regularly and, now that I'm back in New Mexico, gala occasions are rare.

Here you see a really marvelous example of Edwardian metalwork -- the loveliest clasps and purse frames in history -- combined with geometric decoration that anticipates Art Deco...
