Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $735   

This is an especially nice example of one of the most popular quilt patterns of the 1930's. The "gardens" are made on a small scale with a nice variety of solid and printed fabrics. Many of the prints are from feedsacks. The sashing is the perfect solid color blue. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Scalloped edges give a graceful finish. The quilt measures 84" x 88", suitable for a double or queen size bed. Dauphin County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.

Mennonite Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1870;Pa.
  Mennonite Straight Furrows Log Cabin Quilt: Circa 1870;Pa.   Sold

This Mennonite Straight Furrows Log Cabin quilt is one of the most unusual I have seen. Elaborate embroidery creates a great counterpoint to the hard edges of the log cabin blocks and makes it "dressier" than most wool log cabins. The overlapping circles border is most unusual if not unique for this type of quilt. The solid color green tone is also out of the ordinary. The entire piece is made of wool. It is in pristine condition. Measurements are 72 inches square. Pennsylvania origin; Circa... Click for details

William Spratling Wood and Silver Dish   $795

Measurements are 8 inches long x 4 1/2 inches at its widest. It is 1 1/4 inches deep. The bowl and silver might benefit from oiling and polishing but I leave that to the next owner. It is in excellent condition. The hallmark dates from 1956 - 1962.

Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England
  Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England   $657

This painted pot of flowers was probably intended as a decorative table mat. It measures 9 1/4" long x 8 5/8" wide and is professionally mounted on a stretcher that is 11 1/4" x 12". It is signed on the bottom Irena Foater who was probably the proud maker but might also have been the recipient. There is a small right angle tear in the central flower that shows in the thumbnail. There are no other condition issues. Based largely upon the plaid fabric used for the binding, I date this to about... Click for details
