Baskets of Flowers Quilt: Circa 1900

This Baskets of Flowers quilt could not be more bold and straightforward. It is well pieced; appliqued and quilted. Using the same colors for the details of the Baskets as well as the flowers pulls it all together.

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).
