Sold Antiques

Quilts and other items on this page are already sold, but I encourage one to check out my sold items, as I occassionally will come across another item that is similar, of course not exact. Remember quilts are one of a kind and the uniqueness of them make them a very reasonable collectible textile.  Remember each quilt is made by an individual woman or child or man or boy or possibly a group of people and there won't be another precisely like the one sold.  In my opinoin,  vintage and antique quilts on the market today are a great value overall especially when buying condition, quality, workmanship and design.

Rare Oregon City Indian Trade Blanket- Black/White-SOLD

Offering this hard to find color of an early, circa 1920's Oregon City Indian trade blanket. The colors of only black and grey with alittle white and having the original grey felted binding makes this blanket one of the more desired blankets made by Oregon City.  I personally love this combination,,, so it may be a matter of choice in colors.  The condition of this blanket is excellent, as blankets go , some might consider close to mint ,,, seeing a small moth spot as shown and looks like it was stored well for many years. Both sides of the blanket have a different look,, one of the charms of these blankets, having 2 in one.  A fantastic collectors blanket and it displays so well and looks handsome on a wall or however one might want to dispay one.  The wool blanket retains most of the Oregon City label in the corner, dating to it post 1920. There is a blanket like this in the book Language of the Robe by Bob Kapoun on page 97 and also one with this pattern in the book, Chasing Rainbows by Barry Friedman on page 140 upper right. It was noted that this pattern was featured in a 1925 catalog.  This is like a black and white quilt,,, they are hard to find too....

Rocky Mountain Road Quilt- Primitive  SOLD

This is one of those patterns I personally never tire of,,, Rocky Mountain Road,,, also a New York Beauty variation.  It is not perfect,, but very visual and really more on the primitive side. Has a few spots of wear and there is minimal quilting . It has it's imperfections , as the sides and ends are not real straight. Hey,,, this quiltmaker was wanting a quilt for warmth possibly and this fit the bill. Or possibly, this was an attempt at a difficult pattern. Although,, I do notice the centers with the points look quite well pieced. It is all hand pieced.   There's even a small Milling Company sack on the back used for some of the backing. Texas.

Red/White/Blue Cross and Star Quilt( Exhibit)-  SOLD
This excellent condition quilt with patriotic colors of red, white and blue in a pattern of a cross-like pattern and stars in-between. Actually not sure of pattern name. (If anyone knows pattern I appreciate help on this.) Unwashed, near mint quilt was probably just used for display. A large quilt 84x99 which can be used for some of todays bigger beds. Very nice quilting at 9-10 spi. The pattern is set off by the triple border and the quilt is hand bound with a separate binding. The quilt displays well and also works to display it on a wall. Lancaster, Pa area. This quilt will be in an upcoming exhibit in Houston, Tx this fall at Quilt Festival. This information was passed onto me by an appreciated email: Brackman 1991 “Our Country”, published Kansas City Star 1939. Unless KC Star got the pattern from someone else, predating their publication, your quilt is probably subsequent to 1939, maybe (just thinking) not until December 1941 (Pearl Harbor) or after. With that name, one would think the patriotic coloring was probably suggested with the pattern.

The blocks are only 3 1/4 inches big. It is all hand quilted and also hand pieced. Unfortunately this quilt was really used and is not in the best of condition. There are about 82 baskets of the some 230 that have various degrees of wear from very slight to extensive.. There's a piece out of the corner and damage on the upper right side. This is more of a history quilt,, or like a favorite book that someone or many loved. The quilt came out of the New York area.

This is a quilt I purchased because of the love for the pattern and the history that could possible be found with such a treasure trove of family names from over 140 plus years ago. I hope this quilt finds the home where it will be in better care than it had it its past and be loved and cherished. One may even find a decendant of one of the names found on the quilt.

It has only had one bath as it appears unused , but there is one slight age? spot, shown, or I would consider it near mint. The quilt has a lovely scalloped border with the points between the scallops. The rings are only 12 inches across and only 3 inches between the center rings. The single arc is only 1 1/2 inchs wide. A soft lavender ground and the backing is the same. For the binding the same lavender fabric was used and was hand stitched on for a fine finish. It is all hand quilted at 7-8 spi and a neat little quilting pattern used in the center. The small wedding ring quilt was hand pieced too. Crib quilts of original size and scale are getting harder to find and this is a charming quilt. Central Missouri area.

Missouri Daisy Quilt-  8 Point Stars  SOLD
Missouri Daisy Quilt- 8 Point Stars(q-418)-Circa 1890's, size 75x89. The condition of this quilt is mint, as it looks like it has probably had just one bath in its life and is fresh and clean. I was calling this an unusual 8 point star pattern untill finding the pattern name called Missouri Daisy, and to add to that I bought it in Missouri. The pattern looks like the daisy's are touching points and then you can also see another pattern if lookiing at the white ground instead of the colors. It is all hand quilted at a very nice 7 spi and for the binding the back fabric is brought to the front and machine stitched down. It is hand pieced. The fabrics of double pink and green set on a white ground make for a very attractive, showy quilt. Displays well and an excellent quilt to add to a collection. Missouri.

Suspension Bridge Quilt- MAQS exhibit-SOLD
Suspension Bridge Quilt(q-341) Circa 1880's, size 62x70. This wonderful graphic quilt has a lot of visual appeal. The pattern is also known as Broken Circle and Sunburst. The condition is good, as it's not quite perfect, but I was drawn to it by other factors. There is some fading of the fugitive green and there's a couple of old patches,one shown, on it that were left as is. Actually, the red patch isn't stitched through to the back , so I feel like it was made when the top was pieced. It is all hand quilted and not the smallest of stitches. Wonderful fabrics and a pattern to match. There's a few age, storage spots and a few light wear spots on the binding, but I don't see any other wear on the top. It is hand pieced.

Shyfly Quilt    SOLD
Shufly Quilt(q-195) Circa 1900-1910, size 70x85. Condition is excellent on this Oklahoma made quilt. Lots of old fabrics , some dating back to 1880's , so was probably a scrap bag of some fabrics when pieced, although lots of black prints used. Now that I am looking at it fully , I see black or gray in all the blocks. Wonder if that meant something. Beautiful blue calico fabric used for the entire backing and matter-in-fact it was turned to the front and whipped down by hand for the binding. All hand quilted at 6 spi. Quilted diagonally across the quilt. It looks like there was an old well done repair in the maroon fabric, pictured, that blends great. Woodward , Ok. estate.
