Beautifully executed version of a Basket pattern. Pristine, unwashed condition. An unusual choice of color make this quilt a real stand-out. The back is pieced in bars pattern as seen in the last detail photo, making this quilt equally usable on both sides. Excellent quilting. Measures 78 inches square; Pennsylvania origin.
Antique Turkoman (Yomud) Asmalyk, dating from the last quarter of the 19th Century, in excellent condition.
This Birds in the Air Quilt is done with a lush combination of saturated colors. The red printed ground combined with the purple printed border are fabrics not often seen. They combine beautifully and work well with the prints of the small triangles. The maker included just enough pink to give a flutter to the flying birds. The scale of the quilt with just nine blocks filled with small triangles is unusual and very effective. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition...
This is both the earliest and largest Tumbling Blocks quilt that I have seen. It measures an enormous 102" x 116"; generous for a king size bed or a fabulous wall hanging for a loft space. This pattern is always dramatic but the scale of this makes it unusually so. Well quilted; hand loomed Trenton tape binding. Front is in excellent condition. There is one dark spot about the size of a dime that is visible in first thumbnail close-up. Staining on the back does not come through to the front...
The tiny scale of these LeMoyne Stars could not make them any more precious. Each star is 2 3/4" in diameter. They are made with a fabric of crescent moons. The corner blocks have stars with the same fabric. The five strip borders have a different geometric print.
Condition is excellent. The quilt measures 70" x 80". New York State origin; circa 1870's.
Antique Persian long rug, circa 1910, of Kurdish (Bidjar) origin, measuring approximately 4' by 14'2", in good overall condition, with complete ends and sides.
Fantastic length of antique jet beaded trim featuring a lattice weave motif and measuring 72”. Excellent condition.
New York Beauty is a difficult pattern to execute which may be why I have never before seen them done as a pair. This pair is especially well pieced and quilted. The off blocks are quilted with finely stitched bouquets of flowers. At the intersections, the maker made the unusual choice of miniature Dresden Plates. The colors are very soft and pleasing.
Included with the quilts is a matching pair of square throw pillows.
One quilt measures 63" x 96" and the other is 63" x 100"...

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). Later wood frame with oak veneer. Measures 5” by 3 ¾”; sight size is 3 ½” by 2 ¼”. Condition is very good – frame has a few nicks and scratches.
Both the pattern and colors make this Sunburst quilt a really powerful design. I like to think that the center and corners choices of flowers warmed by the sun are a symbolic choice as well as good design. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. The body is quilted with postage stamp size squares and a cable pattern in the border.

This unique quilt depicting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is a folk art masterpiece. It was made in Vermont in the 1830's by a member of the Sinclair family.
The center of the quilt portrays Creation with the sun surrounded by four phases of the moon. Below the center circle is shown Eve picking the forbidden fruit with a snake rearing its threatening head. To the right we see Eve giving the apple to Adam. At the top, Adam and Eve are driven from the Garden of Eden...
Beautiful Wall Hanging/Painting depicting Ganesh, some wear but good condition and highly decorative with good lighting. Size: H. 210cm x W. 83cm
This hooked rug is done in a quilt pattern known as Straight Furrows Log Cabin. The diagonal lights and darks make a wonderful design.
The rug is made of wool; circa 1920's; from New York State. The rug itself is in excellent condition. Measurements are 18" x 36". It is mounted on a homemade stretcher that, in all honesty, is not an enhancement. It should probably be re-mounted or it could be used as a table mat without being mounted.
This classic Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt is made with a beautiful combination of light weight wools. The solid red and variety of blues are especially effective in creating the diagonal light and dark. Some of the small centers are made of more than one piece, giving a nice quirky touch. The quilt is in excellent condition. There are two tiny holes in one of the red logs but no other condition flaws. The backing is also a fine wool...
