Fifteen Point Star Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $1,985   

It's difficult to say whether or not the maker of this Fifteen Point Lone Star Quilt set out to make this pattern or whether it got out of control. In either case, it is likely unique. It is interesting that five point stars surround the central image and the overall star essentially has five sides. So maybe this was all intentional? Unwashed, immaculate condition. Wonderful selection of fabrics. Measures 80" square; Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.

Pair of William Spratling Wood and Silver Dishes
  Pair of William Spratling Wood and Silver Dishes   $975

It's not clear for what purpose these wood and silver dishes by William Spratling were intended. The dark spots in the centers indicate they were used as ash trays but this was not necessarily the purpose for which they were made. Can serve well for food or on a dresser for change or jewelry. Wonderfully hand carved bowls. Measure 4" square; circa 1950.
