Miniature Mosaic Bullseye Quilt: Circa 1870   $9,500  

This miniature hexagons quilt is quite astounding on several levels. It has the smallest hexagons I have seen. They measure about 3/4" to a side. The fabrics range from the 1830's to 1870's. The quilt is in mint, unwashed condition. Use of the red circles is terrific in creating a focus. Quilts such as this with thousand of pieces were often made in the late 19th century for competitions at fairs. I hope this got the blue ribbon it deserves! Measurements are 71" x 83".

Economy Patch Quilt: Circa 1880's; Pennsylvania   $650  

This Economy Patch quilt has been packed away and is as fresh as the day it was made some 125 years ago. The solid and printed reds contrast wonderfully with the variety of multicolor fabrics. Three borders echoing the colors of the body of the quilt tie it all together. The overall palette is somewhat different than one usually sees making for a sophisticated looking country quilt. Measurements are 69" x 79"; Pennsylvania origin.

Floral Wreaths Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania
  Floral Wreaths Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $2,150

This lovely Floral Wreaths quilt has many traditional elements yet shows its own unique personality. The repetition of the flower in the center of the wreath is an unusual variation. Berries or grapes in the border with a leaf different from the interior is also somewhat out of the ordinary as is the sashing separating the blocks. One does not usually see that in applique quilts. It is very nicely quilted with diamonds throughout. Measurements are 63" x 68" which is unusually small for this... Click for details

Nine Patch crib quilt that is one of the most elegant examples of this pattern that I have seen. The lush variety of printed fabrics date from the 1830's - 50's. Setting the blocks on point and creating a diagonal sashing make the entire piece more dramatic than when set straight. A finely scalloped border is a wonderful frame and the blue printed backing fabric is jaw dropping. It is in excellent condition and has been professionally laundered. Measurements are 32" x 37 1/2"; New York State... Click for details

Early Embroidered Table Mat: Circa 1800   $695  

This elegant embroidered mat may have been for a wall or a table. Remnants of tape on the top lead me to believe it had been hung. The embroidery is silk on very fine cotton or linen. Measurements are 7" square. The break in the tape mentioned above is the only condition apology. American origin; circa 1800.
