One Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1940   $185   

This is one of the smallest doll quilts I've seen. It was most likely made for use in a doll house. It measures 4 1/2" x 5 1/2"; done all of cotton ginghams. The colors are well place to give this little gem a nice abstract quality in addition to the One Patch pattern. Excellent condition. Machine quilted around the edge; circa 1940.

Fabric Silhouette: Circa 1860   $695  

Rare fabric silhouette of a full body male. Done in silk and velvet on wool. Fabric of hat was cleverly chosen to resemble beaver. Initially, I thought this was a needle case but realized that it has no function other than the pleasure of it. Probably done about 1860 but a person more familiar with costume might say earlier. Professionally mounted on stretcher that measures 11" x 14".

Privy pocket that is extraordinary in several ways. Most wonderful are the graphics; the Irish Chain is set to create striking diamond and X patterns.

Mennonite Flower Garden Chair Pad: Ca. 1900; Pa.
  Mennonite Flower Garden Chair Pad: Ca. 1900; Pa.   $225

Were it not for the trapezoidal shape of this Grandmother's Flower Garden, one would mistake it for a doll quilt rather than the chair pad it is. Hexagons are appliqued to the backing. Wool; two small breaks in the fabric show the paper foundations of the hexagons. Beautiful colors are well planned and create a "fence" around the flower gardens. Pennsylvania Mennonite; circa 1900.
