Fox and Geese with Pinwheels Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $2,400  

This beautifully crafted quilt combines two traditional patterns that I have never seen abutting one another. The red and white blocks are Fox and Geese (aka Double X or Crosses and Losses). Placing them next to the Pinwheels of such different colors makes for two equally dominant patterns that play well off each other. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. It has beautiful quilting that includes a graceful feather throughout the border. Measurements are 90"... Click for details

Homemade Cat Toys: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania
  Homemade Cat Toys: Circa 1920; Pennsylvania   $375

The sock cat on the left is unusual for two reasons. Very few are white - they are virtually always black. In addition, few have legs. This has two front legs. Whiskers and eyebrows are drawn; eyes and lips are painted. The cat measures 9" tall from the paws to tips of the ears. It has several darned areas attesting to the fact that it was played with and loved. The black cat on the left is wool mohair. A small hole in one front leg shows that it is straw filled and has a wire armature. Lips... Click for details

Wool Pennants Quilt   $2,400  

This original piece of textile nostalgia is made of pennants from points of interest primarily in the eastern United States and several in Canada. In addition, pennants from Dartmouth; N.Y.U; Notre Dame and the Coast Guard are included. Perhaps they were collected during one's travels from Florida to Maine. Regardless of how they were assembled, they were put together to make a strong graphic statement in terms of color and design. Measures 53" x 108".

Quirky Sampler Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
  Quirky Sampler Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $1,425

This Sampler quilt has a quirky charm of its own. The blocks combine traditional patterns with scrappy cotton crazies. Setting the blocks in a stepped pattern is an unusual twist giving the sashing a Streak of Lightning pattern. While initially the pattern may seem random, the maker evidently tried to give some structure by placing an Evening Star in each of the four corners. The printed patchwork cat block is especially endearing. Measurements are 80" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
