$1775. 

This unusual Starbursts quilt is especially complex because of the pieced diamonds background. Five starbursts and four other geometric elements seem to float upon it. It is made of a wide variety of late 19th century fabrics that are well blended. There is some light soiling on some of the light color fabrics but it does not detract from the dramatic impact of this unusual quilt. Measurements are 82" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

$1850. 

This sterling silver an onyx bracelet is a rare and early example of the work of silver master, Antonio Pineda. The hallmark dates between 1949 and 1953 when he used the name Jewels by Antonio. It foreshadows the industrial designs often seen in his work. The construction of this bracelet is especially interesting in that it is hinged on the back in a way that allows the stones to move making it very flexible and easy to wear. Measurements are approximately 7 1/2" long (difficult to measure ...click for details

$6400. 

This Rising Sun quilt (aka Russian Sunflower) has it all. It is a beautiful pattern with extraordinary quilting and extensive provenance. It was made by Mary Showman Poffenberger (1827-1902) for her husband Elias Poffenberger (1827-1901). The Poffenberger farm is well known because it was on the Antietam National Battlefield. The quilt was made close to the time of the Civil War. It measures90" x 102". It is densely quilted with tiny stitches in multiple patterns. Each Sunflower is s ...click for details

Wonderfully versatile long sterling silver chain made of hammered circles. They vary in diameter from1 1/8" to 1/2". Total length of the necklace is 40" so it can be worn singly or doubled.

$2100. 

To the best of my knowledge, this quilt pattern combining Black Eyed Susans with Barnraising is an original. The green has probably lightened with washing but the quilt remains vibrant and strong. The egg yolk yellow/ orange of the Barnraising perfectly continues the Black Eyed Susan theme. Measurements are 67" x 80". Probably Southern origin; circa 1900.

$1185. 

This Courthouse Steps Log Cabin quilt is unusual because of the use of solid white blocks with the calico prints. The piano key border is a nice way to continue the strips of the Log Cabin while offering a variation in the pattern. The center of each Log Cabin consists of solid red and white blocks but their placement varies, another nice touch. They may appear rust color on some monitors but in reality, they are bright, clear red. Measures 74" x 84". Summer weight with no batting. Ex ...click for details

LeMoyne Stars quilt with stars on an lovely small scale. They measure about 3 1/2" in diameter. Most are red with solid tobacco brown but scattered among the two outermost rows are some with green calico instead of brown. Who knows why the maker made this variation? It has a well chosen border of squares set on point . It is finely quilted with clamshell patterns. The Stars pattern is strong enough to look great when opened fully yet because of the small scale, it is equally effective folde ...click for details
