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.

Nine Patch inside Garden Maze Quilt: Circa 1869;Virginia   $1,185  

This is an unusual combination of the Garden Maze pattern filled with Nine Patches on point. The Maze is a beautiful shade of blue/gray. It is stronger in color than most of the Nine Patches so it seems to come forward while they recede a bit giving a nice three dimensional quality to the pattern. The backing is a beautiful, soft stripe and floral pattern to which the quilt can be reversed for a second, entirely different quilt. Excellent, unwashed condition. Measurements are 93" x 96.

Sterling Silver Jungle Animal Sculptures
  Sterling Silver Jungle Animal Sculptures   $875

Five sterling silver jungle animal sculptures that are well textured and detailed. Largest of the group is the elephant that measures 2 5/16" tall and 4 1/4" from tail to trunk. He may have been done by a different maker than the rest of the group as he is considerably heavier and does not have a maker's mark as the others do (although it is undecipherable). The animals are not in proportion to their actual size in that the bird is larger than the hippo. The bird has a fish in its mouth. All... Click for details

Silver Box by William G. Matteo: Circa 1950   $1,275  

Sterling silver box by master William G. Matteo (1895 - 1980). Examples of DeMatteo's work are in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. For a time, DeMatteo produced much of the hollowware for Georg Jensen, whose influence can be clearly seen in the graceful lily atop this box. The box is a streamlined form with a tailored molding across the top. Measurements are 5 3/16" wide; 3 1/2 " deep and 1 1/16" tall. A removable cedar insert is included. The... Click for details

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 Asherman 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...

Boots Quilt: Circa 1930   $2,850  

To the best of my knowledge, this Boots pattern quilt is a one of a kind. Because of the two colors, I am not certain whether they are meant to be boots or high button shoes, but in either case, it is a real rarity. There are 156 boots which gives it all a wonderful abstract quality as well. It is stitched with something of an echo pattern around the boots. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 60" x 74". The quilt came with a vague... Click for details

It is in excellent, unwashed condition so the chintz fully retains its glaze. The border is quilted with concentric arcs and the body with diamonds. There are several spots on the reverse but they do not show on the front. The quilt measures 82" x 86". It is from Gilbertsville, Pennsylvania (Montgomery County); circa 1850.
