Mary Had a Little Lamb Hooked Rug: Circa 1930; Pa.   $375  

Mary Had a Little Lamb charmingly depicted in a hooked rug. Mary shown in profile like the Sunbonnet Sue of quilts. Interesting that Mary's lamb is sheared; the legs are a fuzzier wool than the body. Pristine condition; measures 16" x 23". Pennsylvania origin.

Cats Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania
  Cats Crib Quilt: Circa 1930; Pennsylvania   $450

What could be more appealing than this Cats crib quilt pattern? Does the fact that there are nine of them relate to the traditional notion of cats having nine lives? Nicely embroidered with details including a collar on each animal. Cable quilting in the border and concentric diamonds throughout interior. Pristine condition. Colors softer that in photos. Measures 35" x 36". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.

Hourglass Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania   $1,775  

Once again, it's stunning to realize that such a contemporary looking pattern and color combination can be more than 125 years old. This Hourglass (aka Bowtie) pattern quilt is made entirely with two beautiful printed fabrics. The tan background material is probably 10 years older (circa 1860) than the pink (circa 1870). Incredibly crisp, unwashed condition. Measures 84" x 88"; Pennsylvania origin.
Hourglass Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania
Double Hexagons Quilt: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania
  Double Hexagons Quilt: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania   $2,200

Early and compex quilt pattern of Hexagons within Hexagons. Forms a secondary pattern of Six Point Stars around the basic hexagonal block. Beautiful fabrics; heart quilted within each small triangle. Chevrons quilted in large light triangles and cables in the red banding. Difficult to see because of the heavily patterned fabrics but well done. Excellent condition. Measures 85" x 94"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1860.

Pinwheels Quilt with Matching Pillow Sham: Circa 1920   $775  

This Pinwheels pattern quilt is calm and serene, yet not boring. It is a sophisticated shade of dusty rose done in cotton sateen, giving it something of a "dressed up" feel. The matching pillow sham is a true rarity. It would serve for the purpose for which it was intended, but equally well as a matching dresser scarf or wall hanging. Professionally laundered; nicely quilted. Quilt measures 79" square; pillow sham is 31" x 78". Circa 1920.

Baskets Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania
  Baskets Quilt: Circa 1890; Pennsylvania   $1,985

Diagonal placement of the small size Baskets gives this quilt particular interest. Equally enhancing is the forest green background that is quilted in white. Nice variety of 1880's fabrics. Unwashed condition; well crafted. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measures 79" square.

Antonio Pineda Sterling with Pearls Earrings and Brooch   $485  

Two unusual designs by Antonio Pineda, highly collectible Mexican designer. Both in excellent original condition. Antonio was one of the few early Mexican designers who combined silver with pearls. Earrings measure 1 1/4" in length and 3/4" at widest. Brooch is 970 silver. Measures 2 1/2" x 1 1/2". Looks equally good worn vertically or horizontally.

Mariner's Compass Quilt: Circa 1860
  Mariner's Compass Quilt: Circa 1860   $4,200

Mariner's Compass is one of the most difficult patterns to execute. This example is particularly finely done. Unwashed condition shows several light smudges that could be removed with laundering but in my opinion, not worth losing that never washed feel. Has one old appliqued, inconspicuous mend visible in thumbnail photo. Beautifully quilted. Measures 88" square; circa 1860.
