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.

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.

For sale is a terrific antique dog skittle that I acquired from a seller in Maryland. The doggie appears to be completely hand sewn of wool fabric, and has black bead eyes, as well as embroidered nose and mouth.

In addition, the top of the base appears to be covered in paper, as there are visible wrinkles. The skittle measures about 6" tall, and the dog itself is about 4" tall, 2 1/2" wide when measured from its back legs, and 3 1/2" front to back including its tail.
