We think of our homes in very personal ways to express color, form, dimension, and utilization. Wall hangings, tabletop, bed, window, and floor coverings all add to our ideas of what is needed. Our furniture may be practical or whimsical, or a combination. Modern furnishings may suit our needs for functionality, but a need for more personalization may lead us to centuries-old paintings for example. Whatever moves one to seek to transform a house into a home may be found here.
This mid century Amish quilt is bursting with colors (imperfections and all). Created by hand or hands as was the custom, it shows wonderfully as a wall hanging or can be used on a bed or a large table. All cotton in fine condition.
Measures 72″ x 62″
SAILING SHIP DIORAMA
Sailing Ship Diorama, mid-coast Maine origin. Sails, hull, masts and flags carved wood applied to board and framed, then over-painted to create the finished piece. Painted ship and lighthouse add to the charm. Condition is very good and parts are intact. One flag has some paint loss. We believe this is an important and impressive piece of folk art of a classic New England Seascape.
Measures 28 1/4″w x 16 3/4″h x 3″d
Miniature Bathing Beauties
This set of early 1900s bathing beauties in miniature makes them even more rare. Since they are entirely bisque, they do not often retain all their parts including paint which these do. When one has a bathing cap, it is even more collectible. Standing one is 4″h, lounging ones are 3″ each. Sold as a set.
Tennis Playing Woman
The original was once a copper weathervane circa 1900. Wayne Ayers replication, also in copper, is a delicate form showing grace and movement and mounted on a cast iron Eiffel Tower.
Measures 47″h x 22″w
Tiger Maple Stand
Mid 1800’s, Tiger Maple one drawer stand. Delicately formed legs, dramatic figuring overall.
Measures 20″w x 19″d x 27 1/2″h
