Quilts for Sale

International Bank Collection

This group of quilts, from the collection of an international bank in New York, is fresh to the market. The bank purchased the quilts from me, and hung them on their walls for several years. When the decision was made to sell the collection, the quilts came back to me for resale. This is your opportunity to buy quilts that were originally owned by very early, well known and well respected quilt dealers like Bryce and Donna Hamilton, Minneapolis, Minnesota; Bruce Mann (1944-1980), Louisville, Kentucky, who sold me my first quilt; and Sandra Mitchell (1942-2000), Columbus, Ohio.

These small Amish quilts were made in Holmes County, Ohio c. 1990. All are from the Miller family. Sandra Mitchell, one of the earliest and best-known quilt dealers, purchased these quilts directly from the family over a six-month period in 1990. I purchased them from her.
