Diagonal placement of the small size Baskets gives this quilt particular interest. Equally enhancing is the forest green background that is quilted in white. Nice variety of 1880's fabrics. Unwashed condition; well crafted. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measures 79" square.

$1250. 

Anybody know what the initials SES stand for on this Schoolhouse comforter? My guess is Sex Education School. Very interesting mix of crude and sophisticated. The frame with vertically placed blocks is particularly well designed with color and fabrics deliberately planned. Red outlines each of the black corner blocks; the center 3 blocks of each side have fabrics distinguished from all others in the quilt. Excellent condition with the exception of several missing ties. Circa 1910; measures 62&q ...click for details

$2975. 

Dense patterning makes this combination of Star of Bethlehem; Oakleaf; Variable Star and Hourglass a real knock-out. Graduated sizes of each frame add to the drama of the large central star. Colors and fabrics have mellowed with washing. Likely a unique combination of patterns. Measures 82" x 99"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.

Small triangles, with excellent use of light and dark, truly convey the sense of Birds in the Air, as this pattern is so aptly named. Well pieced and quilted with cable pattern in border. Blocks nicely miniaturized to fit the scale of the quilt. Beautiful selection of fabrics; excellent condition. Circa 1880; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 38" square.

$1975. 

The simple One Patch pattern is made extraordinarily rich and sparkly by the use of a multitude of glorious fabrics of the 1860's and 70's. All are fine wool challis. Lightweight; quilted but no batting. Each block measures 1 1/2" square. Tremendous use of lights and darks; printed and solid fabrics. Back is somewhat fragile and has had several mends; front is in excellent condition. Measures 85" square; Pennsylvania origin.

$4200. 

Mariner's Compass is one of the most difficult patterns to execute. This example is particularly finely done. Unwashed condition shows several light smudges that could be removed with laundering but in my opinion, not worth losing that never washed feel. Has one old appliqued, inconspicuous mend visible in thumbnail photo. Beautifully quilted. Measures 88" square; circa 1860.
