Reversible One Patch and Nine Patch Quilt: Circa 1880's; Maryland
  Reversible One Patch and Nine Patch Quilt: Circa 1880's; Maryland   $395

This reversible comforter is probably meant to have the Nine Patch as the front as that is the side on which it is tied. To my eye, the One Patch is far more beautiful as both the color combination and the printed fabrics are luscious. The primary red print has birds in nests. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. It is from Frederick County, Maryland; circa 1880's.

Original Applique Quilt with Oakleaves: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania   $2,250  

This beautiful applique quilt appears to be an original pattern alternating with traditional oakleaves. The red fabric is as unusual as the pattern. It is very well quilted with wreaths between the applique. The centers have different designs including hearts; stars; apples; flowers and a pear. The quilt is in excellent unwashed condition. There is slight unevenness to the background that could be remedied with a wash but I don't feel it is necessary. Measurements are 86" x 88". Pennsylvania... Click for details

Chunky hematite stones are wrapped in steel wires in these artisan made cufflinks. The stones measure approximately 1 inch long and 3/4 "tall. There is a small indentation on one of the stones that seems to be a natural flaw rather than a chip.

Shoo Fly Quilt: Circa 1880's   $695  

This quilt most closely known as Shoo Fly (aka Alamanizer) is an unusual combination of elegant and country. The basic quilting; medium thick batting and plaid ground give it a very country feel. At the same time, there is a blue glazed cotton used throughout that is most often seen in far "dressier" pieces. The maker evidently had an eye for detail as in the lower right block, she pieced the same blue striped fabric in four different designs. The quilt measures 82" x 88". Found in Pennsylvania...
