Gorgeous 19th century antique canvas work notebook, featuring a young man sitting in contemplation outside of a cottage; the reverse features a folly and fountain landscape.

This pin cushion makes quite a statement. It has wonderful calico print fabrics in soft red, blue and brown. It is 7" square and is 3 1/2" thick and very heavy. You can see that it did have pins stuck in it at one time. It was made to be used. This is the best pin cushion! C. 1880 with some of the fabrics earlier.
Very nice poplar Shaker bonnet with a label marking the size as a 5. They were also made in size #6 and size #7. The bonnets were sold by the Shakers in their gift shops but they were not made by the Shakers. This one is in very good condition. It does have a few brown stains at the top of the brim edge, see photo. This is just about as good as you can get for this type of Shaker bonnet.
This small purse is an absolute gem. The extremely fine designs – a bird on the front and a group of roses on the back – are worked in tiny petit point stitches in vivid colors. The bird has a blue head, red breast and brown wings and sits on a branch loads with blossoms. The roses are white, pink and red, and beautifully shaded. The body is constructed of very fine taupe netting...

Beautifully quilted version of a Caesar's Crown quilt. The diamond shapes of the border are repeated in each crown block, making for a nice interplay between the two. It is also interesting to note that the white off blocks create a secondary pattern of a four leaf clover.

A nicely stitched sampler by Mary Thomas, no date, with the inscription Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled. The edge is embroidered with leaves and flowers, with a floral garland under the verse. The prominent budding vase is in the center with fruit baskets and boats on either side. The boats are very interesting perhaps an indication that Mary travelled, lived near the ocean, or had sailor relatives...
Center medallion Dresden Plate quilt surrounded by partial blocks of the same pattern. Multicolored embroidery adds to the radiating effect. Pristine condition. Mid-weight wools; cable quilting in border. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania Mennonite origin. Circa 1900. Measures 76" square.
This sweet little brown and red doll quilt is in exellent condition with just a little fraying on one edge...see close up. I like to see signs of age like this because it shows it really old. When fabric has been folded and washed and ironed the folds start breaking down the fabric, sometimes aging is a good thing. The quilt is 6" square and is backed with a double pink calico.
Adorable little framed Victorian beadwork picture, featuring a central cross, anchor and heart (for faith, hope and charity), under a bow, and surmounting a pansy (remembrance).

It is not often that I get a nice quilted pillow case never mind that it has brown and blue calico fabric. It is all hand sewn and the fabrics are 1870's. It is a size that fits regular bed pillow. I used a fairly large puffy pillow and it still worked well. There are a few penny sized spots that have started to fray a little but it would be fine on a guest bed or stuck in a comfy easy chair. It is 22" by 15". (Bed pillow doesn't come with it.)
Finely beaded 19th century miniature pie crust coin purse, featuring a floral geometric pattern in turquoise blue. Gorgeous repousse silver frame. Beading is in good condition; there’s one hole; losses under the frame, and some missing loop twist fringe. Measures 4”.
Antique flannel dog filled with grain or sawdust that makes him feel like a bean bag and allows him to stand nicely. He has big bead eyes and replaced floppy ears. The original ears must have been further back where you see a white patch. That patch is white flannel that hasn't gotten dirty. He has a couple of mends but is old and nice and has a bit of a worried look. He is 7 1/2" long and 6" tall. (His ears are a wool knit fabric that looks like they have been there for a while.) Hi is 19th C...
