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      
  
Hourglass Crib Quilt: Circa 1890
Lone Star Doll Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Lone Star Doll Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $485

This Lone Star (aka Texas Star or Star of Bethlehem) doll quilt is a terrific miniature. Rarely does one see a small one in this pattern. The quilt measures 23 1/2 inches square. Because it is square, it would look especially good if hung on point. It is well quilted with floral medallions in the corners around the Star; cable in the pink border and diagonal lines in the outer border. The front is in spotless condition. There are scattered small orange spots on the back that do not show... Click for details

Sampler Crib Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $4,000  

One does not often find full size 19th century sampler quilts but those made in the 19th century are as scarce as hen's teeth. The nine blocks of this fine example are beautifully set off on a solid red ground. It is very well pieced. The border has a cable quilting pattern and double straight lines throughout the sashing. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There is a spot about the size of a pea on one of the bars of the Joseph's Coat block but nothing else to mention. The backing... Click for details

Early Applique Central Wreath Crib Quilt
  Early Applique Central Wreath Crib Quilt   $695

Applique crib quilt with an unusual combination of patterns. The central wreath is surrounded by four compass-like appliques and four stems with leaves that seems as though they flew off the wreath. The three red printed fabrics date to the first half of the 19th century. Backing is a tan printed fabric. The quilt has light staining but has never been washed. It consists of a top, batting and a backing but it is not quilted. Measurements are 35" x 42". Pennsylvania origin; ex-Trish Herr.

Lone Star Crib Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $985  

It's not often that one sees a Lone Star (aka Star of Bethlehem or Texas Star) quilt in a crib size. This fine example is done with perfectly Pennsylvania colors. Four different calico prints are well combined with a fifth one for the backing. The blue corner blocks are nicely quilted with small diamonds and a cable pattern in the border. Measurements are 40 inches square. It is in excellent condition with a pea size smudge in the outer border. There is a tiny hole on the back where it probably... Click for details
Lone Star Crib Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania
Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England
  Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England   $675

This painted pot of flowers was probably intended as a decorative table mat. It measures 9 1/4" long x 8 5/8" wide and is professionally mounted on a stretcher that is 11 1/4" x 12". It is signed on the bottom Irena Foater who was probably the proud maker but might also have been the recipient. There is a small right angle tear in the central flower that shows in the thumbnail. There are no other condition issues. Based largely upon the plaid fabric used for the binding, I date this to about... Click for details

Feathered Star Crib Quilt: Circa 1840; Pennsylvania   $3,850  

This stunning Feathered Stars crib quilt has the additional feature of being reversible. The front side is a group of both Feathered and Evening Stars in a wonderful variety of red prints. They are set on a solid glazed blue cotton. The front is in spotless condition. The reverse is a triangles pattern done with two different prints (one with a glaze) and the same solid blue as on the other side. There is one smudge in the center diamond. The quilt measures 42" x 43 1/2". Pennsylvania origin;... Click for details
Feathered Star Crib Quilt: Circa 1840; Pennsylvania
Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1910;Pennsylvania
  Pinwheels Crib Quilt: Circa 1910;Pennsylvania   $695

I am taking the liberty of naming this unusual pattern as Feathered Pinwheels. The four blocks in the center are a traditional Pinwheel but the addition of triangles around it create something new. Placement of the triangles creates an overall diamond pattern in addition. The quilt is made of a small white on blue print. It is very nicely quilted with feathers throughout. It has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 32" x 34". Pennsylvania origin; circa... Click for details

Nine Patch Crib Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $575  

This Nine Patch crib quilt is simultaneously crude and sophisticated. It is a basic pattern made with an unusual color palette. The consistently white centers surrounded by irregular placement of calico gives it a nice, irregular twinkle. Measurements are 31 1/2" x 38 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's. Slight fraying to the binding in some places but no other condition issues. The backing is cotton muslin.

Mariner's Compass Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Mariner's Compass Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $4,500

This stunning Mariner's Compass crib quilt is unlike any other I've seen in terms of color palette as well as design. The central Compass is framed with quarter Compasses and a triangle border. Quilting follows the pieced blocks. The quilt is from the Ausherman Family of Waynesboro, Pennsylvania ( Franklin County). It is professionally mounted on a stretcher that is wired to be hung either horizontally or vertically. The green is more vibrant than appears on my monitor. If you would like to...
