Coverlet & Car Maker Combination Yields Big Price

Collectors have long prized jacquard coverlets. Although they were made throughout the eastern United States during the 1820s through the 1850s, the coverlet weavers of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana were particularly prolific. Woven of bright colors, jacquard coverlets were, and remain, popular because of their complex patterns, often including trees, buildings, birds, and even trains and steamboats. One of the most popular patterns was the eagle. During Garth's May 15, 2015 auction of Early American Furniutre & Decoratve Arts, this coverlet, adorned with a central field of eagles, was offered as lot 459 and came from the collection of the late Margaret Brusher of Ann Arbor, Mich

Ohio Finds! Fascinating Objects from our Past: Zanesville Glass Bottle

For a brief period in the 19th Century, blown glass bottles and flasks were made in large quantities by relatively unskilled glass blowers using handmade molds. Responding to the high demand created by a rapid western expansion of the United States by emigrants who brought little by way of modern convenience, industrious craftsmen utilized clay, stone and sometimes wooden molds to achieve consistent results that had previously only been produced by highly trained professionals. Nuanced marketers infused a bit of whimsy into their products, with swirled ribs, soft colors and sometimes patriotic themes. With the industrial revolution and advancements in technology came an even more efficient p

Curating a Lifestyle: Wanderlust Fulfilled

Few images so capture the spirit of wanderlust, that insatiable passion for travel and adventure, than a ship on the open sea. From the moment the first oceanic explorers conquered the waves and set sail for new, exotic lands, humanity’s fascination with ships and the wondrous expeditions they represent was set. For some, a daily reminder of the endless possibilities of voyages taken, and those yet to come, surfaces in the form of nautical antiques. A popular subject for artists, paintings of water, ships and harbors generally appeal to a wide audience and command very good prices at auction and in galleries.
