Pictured here is a Silk Embroidery on Taffeta done with the skillful hands of  Anne Dandridge Aylett (Alexander), ca 1700’s.  Ms. Aylett was the second cousin to our country’s First Lady, Martha Washington (on the Custis side of the family)!  Yes, Martha Washington (Dandridge) who was also known as: “Lady Washington,” “Martha (Dandridge) Custis Washington,” and “Martha Custis.”  Makes you wonder if Martha and Anne were in the same room during its creation and had any discussions regarding this one of a kind work of art!  This is Americana at its best!  You’ll never see another one!

Anne-Aylett Anderson and Martha Washington information can be found on ‘Geni.’

To add to the spirit of our Americana mix, we will be selling a hand made doll house from the late 1800’s, in it’s original paint and interior wallpaper.  1800's Dollhouse

For the Antiquarian,  a rare two volume set published in 1878, “The Picturesque World or Scenes In Many Lands” as well as ca. 1884 “The Dore Gallery of Bible Stories” by Josephine Pollard highlight our Ephemera lots.

And items from the 1900’s and 2000’s are, as in the past, exceptional in quality and there’s something from each decade.  Featuring, Furniture and area Rugs, exquisite Pottery, Clothing, costume Jewelry, Toys, Dolls and items for the Sportsmen!  Just in, a large collection of Transit and miscellaneous Signage!  Stay tuned for further details!
