All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Textiles : Linens and Lace : Pre 1837 VR item #1129251 (stock #TC0052)
I truly consider this a piece for collectors, as pieces made at home were used until they were just "worn out"! This piece seems never used, but carefully stored wrapped in a piece of homespun linen. From the time when fabrics were made from home-produced yarn, which meant starting from scratch by raising flax for linen or sheep for wool...
All Items : Antiques : Decorative Art : Textiles : Accessories : Pre 1900 item #974699 (stock #TX0034)
So unique as is or made into a long pillow for your music room or parlor,don't you think? Hand embroidered and painted on moire' faille most likely by a Victorian lady for her piano! Can you see the hand painted French horn in the center? The tiny silk knotted rosette trim is fab. The condition is excellent,even with the slightly fading under the music bars, creating a slight shadow in my eyes.The 2nd photo shows the moire' color best...

All Items : Antiques : Instruments and Implements : Sewing : Pre 1900 item #756350 (stock #CL0013)
For the love of Dogs! This Victorian collectible certainly looks like man's best friend. It has a glow that makes me think it's pewter rather than spelter. The old red velvet cushion seems to be original, and has been restitched with some of the original sawdust leaked out. I actually have the sawdust and will refill and stitch if you prefer...

SOLD, Thank you!
Obviously worn, otherwise remarkable interior condition, dark green velveteen with brass framed edges,Scripted IHS medallion,and clasp , and gold gilt edged pages.

As shown in photos, St. Guiseppe with child,makes me think this might be for a first Communion.Published in Milano, Italy...
All Items : Fine Art : Mixed Media : Silhouettes : Pre 1930 item #621858 (stock #FA0003)
Once again, silhouettes have become quite collectible, and this is has a most desirable subject matter The detail in this signed E.V.Maydell and dated 1921 work is most incredible. It is black paper on ecru paper.There is some lifting of the silhouette,and the only breaks I note are at the top of the foot pedal cords,none of which detract at all. It seems to be framed in the age worn, but original black frame. There is no glass, and I leave that to the collector to do as preferred...
All Items : Vintage Arts : Decorative Art : Textiles : Linens and Lace : Pre 1940 item #559844 (stock #TC0005)
This wonderful matched set is most desirable in that it is a matched set for 6 of extremely fine quality linen damask with wonderful heavy drape. Colored damask of this quality is especially harder to find. And it's Round! The napkin pattern has ribbon tied rose bouquets in each corner and the center is full of roses in ribbon and dot frame,(which also frames the edges). The tablecloth has the same center design. The 6 napkins are in excellent condition...
