Carving of man carving a whimsyThis is a wonderful carving of a man who is carving a whimsy chain. The man has a beard, and is wearing painted overalls with a red shirt and cap. He is holding a knife in one hand. The whimsy in progress is a real one: the lower links are free to move, and the last, unfinished links in his hand have been partially worked in a genuine manner. The piece is 6" high by 2 1/8" wide by about 4" deep. It is signed on the bottom "Floyd Hicks 2-91". The condition is excellent. The price is $395.00.

Red, white, and blue strip quiltThis is a very visual red, white, and blue strip quilt. It looks so much more striking in person than in the photos. This quilt was made in the 1940's or 50's from red, white, and blue nylon or polyester, with an unbleached cotton back and red cotton binding. It is hand pieced and hand quilted, in excellent, near mint condition: very clean and crisp. The binding is very slightly faded. One corner of the binding has faint remnants of what looks like a paper sticker that could probably be removed. It measures 72" by 83", and came from an estate in Geneseo, IL. The price is $375.00. Inventory Code: THPS.   Red, white, and blue strip quilt ... Closeup ... Another closeup ... Closeup of a corner ... Another corner ... Back ... Closeup of back.

Fireman quiltThis is a folky fire truck quilt. It has machine appliqued fire trucks and Dalmatian dogs in fire hats. In each corner is a fire hydrant spraying water. The borders are pieced, and the quilt is hand quilted in a cross-hatch pattern. The back is the same light blue fabric as the background of the front. It is 83" long by 67" wide, from the second half of the 20th century. The condition is good, somewhat soft from washing, with light surface soiling and slight wear along the top edge. There are four small, faint spots, the largest about 1/2" long. The price is $595.00. Inventory Code: CTRK.   See a slideshow of several views [1 Mb] ... Fireman quilt ...
