Nine Patch Quilt with Zigzag: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania   $835  

It is difficult to imagine that a quilt as fresh and crisp in condition as this Nine Patch is more than 125 years old. It was obviously packed away and never saw the light of day. Beautiful fabrics; wonderful zigzag border makes a great frame. Quilting in off blocks done in the same nine patch design as the primary pattern. Border quilted with diagonal lines. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; measures 76" x 90".

Bricks Crib Quilt: Circa 1880; Maryland   $675  

Streamlined, perhaps original pattern that I have termed Bricks, for want of a more proper name. Wonderfully abstract in its simplicity. Nicely quilted including concentric half circles in the border that are a terrific contrast to the geometry of the rest of the quilting as well as the pieced pattern. Measures 40" x 55"; excellent condition. Maryland origin.

Dove in the Window Quilt: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania   $1,650

Lone Star Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania
  Lone Star Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $2,400

Dramatic Lone Star quilt (aka Star of Bethlehem) with the most unusual of background fabrics. It's a print I've never seen before that has the profile of a woman. It may be earlier than the calicoes of the star. Unwashed condition. Some oxidation to the solid orange fabric. Measures 100" square, unusually large for the 1870's when it was made. Pennsylvania origin.

Geometric Hooked Rug: Circa 1920; New England   $650  

Wonderful checkerboard type geometric pattern hooked rug. Great use of lights, darks and variegation. Beautiful shade of blue not often seen in such generous amounts in this type of rug. Measures 28" x 42 1/2": wool. Circa 1920 with an earlier checked cotton backing. Excellent condition.

House Hooked Rug: Circa 1900; Maryland
  House Hooked Rug: Circa 1900; Maryland   $2,800

Fabulous abstracted version of a House Hooked Rug. The entrance to the path looks like an upside down heart. Perhaps it was a sweethearts cottage? Great borders make the entire composition varied, unusual end eye catching. Professionally cleaned and restored on edges. Mounted on stretcher that measures 27" x 40". Primarily cotton with some wool. Circa 1900; Maryland origin.
