Antique PA. Lady's Bonnet w/Rickrack Trim

For sale is a rather unusual antique lady's bonnet that I acquired in Pennsylvania, and that I'm sure was made there as well. It is made of a dark gray almost black and white fabric, possibly homespun, has a fairly short cape, and is trimmed with pink and white rickrack. What makes it unusual is that the crown has buttons all the way around allowing it to be removed, although I don't know why. In addition, the brim is filled with stiff cardboard. The bonnet measures about 14" long, 10 1/2" wide front to back, and 15" across when open, as it opens almost completely flat. It is in near mint condition, with no noticeable flaws. Please look carefully at the pictures, and contact me with any questions, or for additional photos.

The quilt measures about 39" x 37", and is in very nice antique condition, with no holes, rips, or repairs.

In addition, her dress and bloomers appear to be original, and the dress looks like it was made using shirting fabric, as it has brown designs, although they are quite faded. Her clothes are treadle machine sewn. The doll measures about 23 1/2" tall, 9" wide hand to hand, and 4" front to back.

Antique Folk Art Whistling Bird Tea Kettle Topper

For sale is a really unique antique folk art bird form tea kettle topper, at least that's what I think it is lol. It has been in my kitchen for quite a few years, and is made of sheet brass.

It has been placed in a custom wood base made by a previous owner. The entire piece including the base measures about 5 1/4" tall, and the piece itself is about3 1/2" tall. The bird alone is about 3 1/4" long. This unusual item is in nice antique condition, with an aged patina, but no significant flaws.

Huge 10" PA. Folk Art Velvet Starfish Pin Cushion

For sale is a wonderful and huge antique folk art brown and black velvet starfish pin cushion or hatpin cushion that I acquired in Pennsylvania, and that I'm confident was made there as well.

It is filled with either sawdust or sand, and measures about 10" in diameter on the bottom, and about 7" tall. It is in very nice antique condition, with signs of age including minor fabric wear, as well as one tear/rip, but basically very nice.

Antique Burl Veneer Tea Caddy w/Original Key

For sale is a wonderful late 18th to early 19th century burl veneer tea caddy that I acquired in Pennsylvania, but that is most likely English. It has a sort of pyramid shaped lid with a carved rectangle on top, slightly canted sides, and bun feet.

It is in nice, but antique condition, with some relatively minor restoration, and it looks like 2 of the feet might be replacements, as 2 have screws in the middle, and 2 don't.

For sale is a wonderful antique Pennsylvania embroidered show towel with a variety of designs including an altar at the top, flanked by 8-point stars and flower stems, with a flower wreath below with what at least to me, look like very stylized vases of flowers. Below that are flower sprigs on each side with a design that incorporates a central heart with flowers and other flourishes in the middle. Above and below those designs is the alphabet, and the top portion is folded down, almost appearing as a separate piece of homespun. Near the bottom there is a bird tree, with 2 pairs of birds appearing to be perched on a branch, and another pair atop a very stylized and oversize tulip ( at least I think that's what it is). The bird tree has a stylized flower design on each side, and at the very bottom there is a flowering bush with deer on each side, as well as the numbers 1 through 9 below. The towel measures about 61" x 16 1/2", and is in nice antique condition, with light toning and some brown spots, as well as a few small holes/fabric separation, but at least in my opinion, it displays very well.
