  William Spratling Brooch/ Pendant with Amethysts   $2,975

Large and dramatic brooch/ pendant by silver master, William Spratling. Rarely seen design. Measures 3 5/16" in diameter.

This is not visible when seen straight on and does not detract from the strength of this magnificent piece that is intended as both a brooch and pendant. 1940's hallmark.

  Nine Patch Quilt ; Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $1,425

Indigo and white Nine Patch quilt with an unusual variation of a zig zag border. One of the Nine Patch blocks reverses the navy and white squares.
