This Hexagons quilt is actually the same block throughout but the change of color gives it a definite center medallion. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. The quilt is made of a tremendous variety of late 1930's printed fabrics, many of which are feedsacks. The backing is a solid red. Measurements are 74" x 84".

This One Patch quilt is like a series of miniature Trips Around the World. Each block consists of concentric postage stamp size squares set on point. The consistent use of yellow centers pulls together the variety of printed fabrics. The sashing is a printed fabric of the same green tone as the solid color border. Measurements are 60" x 70". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930; excellent condition.

Densely pieced Irish Chain quilt in soft, creamy colors. It is made with mostly printed fabrics and a few solids, all from the 1930's. Each square is less than 1" to a side.

While this Sawtooth Diamond quilt may "read" pink on some monitors, it is actually a red chambray, that is red with white threads running through it. The unusual border adds a wonderful new dimension to this traditional pattern. It is in mint, unwashed condition and well quilted with a variety of patterns. The border may have been completed at a later date as it is a newer fabric but I see no reason for it to be a replacement as the quilt shows absolutely no signs of wear. Made circa ...click for details

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

$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.
