Trip Around the World quiltThis is a bright geometric quilt, in a variation on the Trip Around the World pattern. It is machine and hand pieced, and hand quilted. The fabrics are cotton, with a white flannel back and white binding. From the 1940's, it measures 87 3/4" by 74". It is in good, washed condition, with a cluster of three very small dark spots on one edge, each less than 1/4". There is some age darkening on the back along the fold lines, this does not show through to the front. If you look very closely, you can see that some of the blue pieces are hand stitched rather than machine pieced. These might have been replaced some time ago. This is a vivid quilt that looks good on a bed or a wall. The price is $350.00. Inventory Code: TRAH.   See a slideshow of several views [739k] ... Trip Around the World quilt ...

Exceptional house in a bottle whimsyThis is an extraordinary bottle whimsey of a house. The main portion of the house is a single story, with the addition of 2 two-story sections, connected by a bridge. The entire piece is done in great detail. The house rests on an open courtyard enclosed by a fence. Thread is strung through the fence posts as rails. There is an external staircase, shrubbery, and windows all around the four sides of the main house. All of the light and dark checkerboard wood which makes up the floor is actually inlaid in separate small pieces. The different colors of the squares are different kinds of wood. This is also true of the other shades of wood throughout this piece. On the bottom is inscribed information about the maker. It reads "Puky Omaja" and the town name he lived in in Cuba. The bottle is mounted on the base and is 13 3/4" long by 3" in diameter. With the base it is about 4" high. This piece was made within the last few years. While it is not that old, it certainly is exceptional. The entire structure is in excellent condition and can be shipped. The price is $850.00.

Carving of man with cow by Mr. BenjaminThis is a wonderful, strange, and old carved assemblage of a man leading a cow, by an African-American named Mr. Benjamin, who lived in South Georgia.
