This homemade hooked rug predates by at least 15 years the Homage to the Square series of paintings by famed artist Josef Albers. The similarity, though, is unmistakable. This rug is hooked of a variety of cotton and wool fabrics. It is loosely mounted on a homemade stretcher from which it can easily be removed for shipping. Measurements are 40" x 42".

What young girl wouldn't have sweet dreams sleeping under this charming quilt? The center is what I believe to be a gingerbread man surrounded by a puppy, chicks, an elephant, a kitten and some indeterminate animals. All have embroidered faces. It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles. There are two very tiny (smaller than a pea) spots next to the centr ...click for details

Three jaspe pitchers typical of the collectible designs of this rustic terra cotta French pottery. The pitcher on the left with orange dots on brown measures 3 3/4" tall.There is very slight predictable age related wear around the rim. The middle with brown dots on orange is 4" tall with very little wear and no chips. The right is 4 5/8" tall and has a small, unobtrusive chip on the rim. The glaze is very close to the color of the clay so it barely shows. All date to about 1900. ...click for details

Double Sided Sign : New York Central

$800. 

It is difficult to explain the very different sentiments on this painted sign. Certainly the New York Central side is clear but The Bridge What Not is more ambiguous. Regardless of the meaning, both sides make strong graphic statements. The sign measures 32" x 48". It is painted on metal with nice patina.

$2950. 

This traditional Hawaiian applique quilt is done with colors more typical of Pennsylvania than Hawaii. I don't think I've seen another Hawaiian quilt with this rich teal background. It is stitched with echo quilting, typical of Hawaiian quilts, that follows the pattern of the applique. Hawaiian quilts are always striking with their strong central pattern but the colors of this example make it particularly so. Measurements are 74" square; very good condition.

This Lancaster County Amish four patch in a nine patch quilt is brilliantly arranged.The maker used the same colors throughout but placed them so as to create the unusual overall X pattern. This might be a one of a kind. The solid color blocks and border are beautifully quilted with floral wreaths. The body of the quilt is in outstanding condition. There is some fraying to parts of the binding. Measurements are 72" x 78. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.

This is a particularly fine example of the desirable New York Beauty pattern. The colors really seem to give off the glow of sunshine. It is well quilted with overlapping circles that are a terrific complement to the round pieced pattern. The New York Beauty pattern was named by Mountain Mist in 1930 when they published it with recommendations for this particular color combination and quilting patterns. Variations of the pattern had been known prior to 1930 but not with this name. It is in out ...click for details

This is a beautiful example of the much sought after, Delectable Mountains quilt pattern. It is done in a pleasing soft shade of pink. The center forms an Evening Star pattern and it has a wonderful zig zag border framing all. Embroidered in a corner is the name Edna M. Adams and the date 1929. It is the same Edna Adams who signed the Star quilt item # 1238674, although this time she added her initial, making her easier to trace if one wanted. It is in excellent condition and very nicely quilted ...click for details
