It would be beautiful on an 8-ft table or mounted to be a focal piece of art on the wall. 63" by 41" No damages or repairs.

This slightly hexagonal mat boasts three rows of three-stacked coins with a center made of three stacked coins. Beautifully muted colors, faded with time, on a black felt background. Another black felt backing was stitched onto this mat sometime later during the mat's life, probably to preserve it; it is a slightly thicker mat than many of the smaller penny mats. Very few lost stitches or stains. Overall excellent condition. Picture shows worst issue. Fine attention to detail and all handstitched. 19th c, with probably early 20th century back. 12.5" by 13.5" More photos available.

This mat, as well as the others, show painstaking attention to detail. 19th c. Completely hand-stitched. Largest is 13-1/4" x 12" Second and least faded is 10.5" x 9-1/4" Last and most faded is 10" x 9" One of the smaller ones also shows only slight fading and is excellent condition. The third in the trio shows more fading than the other two, which suggests it once sat on a table near a window with lots of light. More photos available. These are outstanding pieces of folk art.

Valentine's Day is almost here! This sweet, folk art, framed, "love wish" is perfect for the one you love! This four-heart print is cut out and matted on dark purple velvet on wood; it is matted in period gilt, and surrounded by a walnut period frame. Dates most likely to late 1800s, early 1900s. The first heart reads: A Golden Wish: Thy memory, as a spell of love, come o'er my mind — as dew upon the purple bell, As perfume on the wind, As music on the sea. As sunshine o the river; — So hath it always been to me: So shall it be forever. The second and fourth hearts contain art and a sash that reads: "I Request Farther Time My Sweet Roses You'll Spare" The third heart reads: Purity: If ever life should seem to thee a toilsome way, And gladness cease to beam upon its clouded day; If, like the weary dove, o'er shoreless ocean driven, Raise though thine eyes above; There's rest for thee in heaven. Velvet wood: 5-1/4" by 5-1/4" Gilt mat: One-quarter inch

Pennsylvania table top penny rug, early 19th c. shaped as a diamond with five rows of small circle coins in stacks of three. The coins are handstitched onto a light background, with a black fabric backing. This highly detailed piece has faded some with time, but was probably once very vibrant in colors of blue, pinks, greens and purples. There is only slight fabric loss. Stitching around coins remains tight, which is a testament to the detail this artist put into creating this mat. 14" x 24" Overall excellent condition.
