It was rare that plates by Doulton were hand-enameled; these are beautiful examples of generous raised enameling combined with transfers...

Blown glass, antique crystal compote by Pickard, attributed. Pickard, one of our porcelain-decorating studios, in America, did decorate glass from time-to-time; however, we cannot guarantee this to have been decorated by Pickard as there is no mark. The "laurel" gold etching, however, was definitely a Pickard pattern. This lovely piece stands 6.25" (15.87 cm) tall, with a bowl 5.5" (13.97 cm) in diameter and 1.5" (3.81 cm) deep, and a foot measuring 3.75" (9.57 cm) diameter. Unmarked...

H. 101 in. x W 77.5 in Superb 18th century tapestry, framed, without its bordure.

The design of this piece is delightful and absolutely mad! It is primarily an Egyptian Revival piece, centering the Goddess Hathor (a goddess of music, dance, foreign lands and fertility who helped women in childbirth [Wikipedia]). She is wearing big earrings, and her usual headdress. She seems to have a flower in her hair, and in front of her there is greenery tied by a ribbon with a bow (laurel? Mistletoe?)...

What I have termed a Feathered Squares quilt is a much more abstract pattern than one usually sees in blue and white quilts of the late 19th century. The nine feathered squares within squares are placed so as to create an additional pattern from the space between them. It is quilted with a chain pattern throughout the white areas. The quilt is in excellent condition. Measurements are 86" x 95"; made 1880's.

It is interesting to see that simply using two different size rectangles can create such a dynamic Streak of Lightning quilt. The dark indigo triangles are larger than the white making for a deeper tone than had they been the same size. The pattern is equally effective vertically and horizontally. Measurements are 73" x 79".
