The placement of color gives this Mennonite Log Cabin Quilt more than its basic Light and Dark pattern. The light grays form a diamond around the maroon corners. The flame red centers and inner border add bounce to the entire piece. The border is quilted with a chevrons pattern. It is made of medium weight wools with a cotton back. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition.

$1975. 

This wonderful 950 silver (higher quality than sterling) necklace by Eduardo Herrera calls two mind two very different images. It looks like coral as well as the cut out designs of Henri Matisse. The links are hammered. They are 1 1/2" wide at the front and 5/8" at the back.The necklace has exactly the right amount of flexibility to make it very comfortable to wear. It is approximately 18 1/2" long; the natural curve of the necklace makes it difficult to measure precisely.

$825. 

This One Patch Charm Quilt is more than its name. The blocks are set on point and colors are used to create a Nine Patch Center Diamond. The term Charm Quilt refers to one in which no fabric is repeated. Many are very similar but on close examination, it is evident that they are not the same. This quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurement are 70" x 76". Oley valley, Berks County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This classic Barnraising Log Cabin quilt has a charming twist. The centers are all Nine Patches. They are done in solid reds which make them really pop out against the prints of the rest of the quilt. The prints include conversationals with anchors, horse heads and jockeys on horses. It is in excellent condition. Measurements are 72" x 82" >Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

This extraordinary pictorial quilt depicts images that are both fierce and friendly. On the bottom are hounds chasing stags while on the top is a tree of life surrounded by birds, one of which may be a dove. It's a shame not to be able to speak with the quiltmaker to learn more of her intent but perhaps it is a metaphor for both the danger and kindness of life. Or am I reading too much into it? The quilt is from Pennsylvania; circa 1870's. Measurements are 77" x 78". It is in ...click for details

This is one of the most interesting cotton Crazy Quilts that I have seen. The indigo background certainly contributes to the punchy look of the quilt. The blocks are a nice combination of crazy and traditional patterns. The center block cleverly combines with the four surrounding it to create something of a medallion. A note sewn to the quilt reads "A Present To Harry W. Keller From Grandma Keller 1900 74 years". The quilt is dated 1900 but the fabrics are all from the last quarter of ...click for details
