Wool Bricks Comforter: Pennsylvania; Circa 1890
  Wool Bricks Comforter: Pennsylvania; Circa 1890   $795.00

This comforter is like op art of the 19th century. The contrast of the red on black circles tied with white thread atop the rectangles make the pattern really move. The darks are wool suiting fabrics. Clearly, this was made for warmth as it is quite heavy, but it was done by someone with an artistic eye. Area of light discoloration visible in thumbnail but it does nothing to detract from the overall impact. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 69" x 71".

Tree Everlasting with Applique Quilt;Ca. 1870
  Tree Everlasting with Applique Quilt;Ca. 1870   $2,200.00

To the best of my knowledge, this is a unique pattern. The bars are an unusual variation of Tree Everlasting and combined with the Crossed Tulips, I believe it to be one of a kind.
