Economy Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania
  Economy Patch Doll Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $325.00

This Economy Patch doll quilt is an interesting combination of crude and sophisticated. The white diamonds really pop out against the printed fabrics surrounding them. The paisley border fabrics are certainly an elegant choice with smaller segments of the print used for rectangular corner blocks. The maker seems to have used the fabrics she had on hand and did her best to create a design well scaled to the 16" x 19 1/2" size of the quilt. Condition is very good; it has been professionally...

Silk Hourglass Doll Quilt: Circa 1870
  Silk Hourglass Doll Quilt: Circa 1870   $395.00

This Hourglass (aka Bowtie) doll quilt is unusually fancy as it is made entirely of silk. The fabrics were most likely dress materials from the 1860's - 70's. The maker cleverly used the same triangles for the border as the body of the quilt. Placing them at right angles, though, gives them a very different appearance. The quilt is in excellent condition. Measurements are 12 1/2" x 17 3/4".New Hampshire origin; circa 1870.

  Pot of Flowers Painted Mat: Circa 1870; New England   $675.00

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.
