Hourglass Crib Quilt: Circa 1890   $395   

This Hourglass crib quilt can be seen as several different patterns. There is the diagonal design in which the indigo triangles make up the bow tie. Alternatively, the primary pattern can be seen as the indigo Four Patch with the light triangles making up the Hourglasses. The binding is the back turned over to the front. While every indication is that it has been this way for many years, it is odd that on one edge, pieces of each block seem to be cut off. This is visible in thumbnail... Click for details

Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England
  Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England   $675
