$795. 

This comforter is like op art of the 19th century. The contrast of the red on black circles tied with white thread atop the rectangles make the pattern really move. The darks are wool suiting fabrics. Clearly, this was made for warmth as it is quite heavy, but it was done by someone with an artistic eye. Area of light discoloration visible in thumbnail but it does nothing to detract from the overall impact. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 69" x 71".

Quilted in green thread with zigzag patterning throughout the border. Measures 75" x 78". Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.

$2200. 

To the best of my knowledge, this is a unique pattern. The bars are an unusual variation of Tree Everlasting and combined with the Crossed Tulips, I believe it to be one of a kind. The use of solid colors further sets off the wonderful center. Excellent condition; has been professionally washed. Measures 87" x 97"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.

This bold Barnraising Log Cabin is made of wool challis from the 1870's. It reverses to a cotton calico One Patch. Dazzling use of stripes in the center.
