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.

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 dynamic quilt is made of a unique combination of Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem) and Tulip patterns. The way in which the tulips are placed around the star gives the overall pattern a whole different outline. Continued placement of the tulips in the corners really fills out the entire composition. Signed "Edna Adams 1931" in embroidery. Pennsylvania origin; Measures 74" x 76". Background is a very pleasing dusty rose color.
