A charming French cut steel beaded purse with a multi-tone rug design in shades of gold, silver and bronze, circa 1900. The purse features an intertwining fringe, a double chain handle, a patterned goldtone frame and a white satin lining. The frame is marked "Made in France". Condition is very good: the beads are all present and tight to the frame. The fringe is missing one string, and there may be some dirt or discoloration on some of the other strings...
This is the finest version of this pattern that I've ever seen. It is extremely well quilted in cross hatching with a wreath in the center surrounding a quilted star. Embroidery adds three dimensionality. Lovely, soft colors; pristine condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920. Measures 72 1/2" x 73 1/2".
A perfect miniature, wonderfully designed and crafted silk Log Cabin doll quilt, a rare find. Terrific combination of solid, striped and printed fabrics. Much more complex design than usually seen in a doll quilt. Measures 24" square; circa 1920. Excellent condition; Pennsylvania origin.
Soft and fresh streamlined Floral Wreath pattern quilt. Unusual to have a nine block applique pattern from the 1920's; they are typical of the 19th century. Well quilted; lovely colors. Newly laundered. Measures 81" square; Pennsylvania origin.
Fantastic early 20th century double-sided silk embroidered bag with a super marcasite and carnelian (either stone or glass) Art Deco clasp. The front features a pair of lovers in a picturesque landscape; he is offering her a flower while a little boy spies on them behind a column. The reverse features knots of flowers. Green silk embroidered handle; cream silk lining with central change purse...
This Pots of Flowers Quilt is unusual in that it is simultaneously fanciful and elegant. The blossoms are far larger than their container giving this otherwise elegant quilt a touch of whimsey. The entire quilt is done in cotton sateen making it "dressier" than many. The applique and reverse applique are elaborately done.
Measurements are 84 inches square. Unwashed, excellent condition. Made circa 1920.
Twentyfive Patch quilt done in a beautiful, soft shade of blue. Sawtooth border is a slightly different fabric that is perhaps 2% darker than the interior. Pristine, unwashed condition. Body is quilted in straight lines; border is a cable variation. Circa 1920; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 72" x 74".
This Nine Patch quilt actually forms two additional patterns. Triangles in the corners of the off blocks create Octagons and the joining of the peach triangles on diagonals creates an Hourglass pattern as well.
The quilt is a beautiful shade of peach, not often seen. It is softer in color than appears on my monitor. It is nicely quilted with diamonds in the white octagons and diagonal lines in the triple border...
Lovely antique floral microbeaded reticule, in vivid colors. The background is bright turquoise-tinged blue; a vine of many colored morning glories climbs up the right half of the purse. Missing half of the beaded twist fringe; two repairs at the top; a few small scattered areas of missing beads; replaced liner. But a beautiful, mostly intact example of micro beadwork. Measures 8” long by 5 3/4'” wide; fringe adds 1 1/2”.
Beautiful Thai Scroll Painting depicting Kinaree Angel, some wear due to age, but good condition overall and highly decorative with proper lighting. Size H. 70" x W. 32"
This Pinwheels pattern quilt is calm and serene, yet not boring. It is a sophisticated shade of dusty rose done in cotton sateen, giving it something of a "dressed up" feel. The matching pillow sham is a true rarity. It would serve for the purpose for which it was intended, but equally well as a matching dresser scarf or wall hanging. Professionally laundered; nicely quilted. Quilt measures 79" square; pillow sham is 31" x 78". Circa 1920.
This Nine Patch Crib Quilt must have been made by someone with a droll sense of humor. The centers utilize printed fabric with geese and the entire piece is framed by a Wild Goose Chase border. I prefer to think this was not coincidence. Unused condition; has several tiny spots that I do not think merit laundering. Quilted with diagonal lines. Utilizes several different blue fabrics. Measures 36" x 37". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
