Silver and Enamel Earrings by Helen Hosking   $215   

Interesting silver and enamel earrings by New York jewelry artist, Helen Hosking. Hosking's work has been in museum shows throughout the United States. These triangular earrings are particularly interesting because the enamel looks like inlaid stone. Measurements are 1 1/8" wide and 1 1/16" tall. They are large but light enough to be worn comfortably. Clip backs can be converted to posts; excellent condition.

French Jaspe Pottery
  French Jaspe Pottery   Sold

These three country pitchers, known as jaspe pottery, are from the Savoie region of France. They date to the late 19th - early 20th century. They are all solid enough to hold liquid but show some wear to the rims as is to be expected with utilitarian pottery of this age. The hand painted designs make this pottery fun to mix and match. More pieces are available. Please inquire.

Homemade Tin Flask   $235  

This handmade tin flask was clearly meant to be sculptural as well as functional. It is 8 1/2" tall including the hand carved wood cork. It has a dent on one side which does not show on the thumbnails. Unfortunately, it would no longer hold water as the lead solder has separated from the tin in one place. It remains, however, an appealing ornament.

Sculpture of Egyptian Figures
  Sculpture of Egyptian Figures   $575

It is difficult to say the purpose for which this sculpture of an ancient Egyptian couple was made. It may have been for a stage decoration or perhaps purely ornamental. It is made of plaster and measures 38" tall and 17 1/2" wide. Probably made in the early - mid 20th century. Good condition with some slight chipping to the paint.

Log Cabin Stars Quilt: Ca. 1880; Kentucky   $2,975  

This awesome combination of patterns is one I've never seen before. The Six Point Stars are filled with Log Cabin blocks that have a different appearance when each is seen as one of the points of the stars. The purple ground blocks form hexagons around the stars or, when looked at vertically, they form a zigzag. The multiple patterns just don't quit in this amazing quilt. It is made of fine wools with well placed diamonds of black velvet. It is machine quilted in a contrasting color thread which... Click for details

  Cotton Crazy Quilt: Circa 1889; Pennsylvania   $1,800

This Cotton Crazy Quilt is truly a collage of fabrics. The center has the structure of a Nine Patch within a Diamond in a Square. This unusual touch pulls in your eye before wandering around the composition of irregularly shaped pieces. It is made of a wonderful variety of late 19th century fabrics and is in mint condition. The red and white polka dot fabric is a bold and effective frame for this unusual quilt. Measurements are 86" x 92"; Pennsylvania origin.

Measures 86" x 90": Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.

Irish Chain Quilt: Circa 1930; Kentucky   $1,475  

This is an very densely pieced version of an Irish Chain Quilt. It was beautifully planned with printed fabrics in the middle of each band and solids on either side. The use of the same piecing throughout the border is an especially nice touch. The off blocks are also pieced, done in strips. This came from the same household as the Elizabeth Beard applique quilt,item # 1182073 and may have been made by Beard as well but does not have the label. Both have ivory colored fields and were made in the... Click for details
