[New York]: Seen today at Sotheby's

While Ma went to a farm auction today, the Urban Caballero and I went to sight-see at Sotheby's. We saw an auction of early Americana. This was my favorite item - a linen bed cover from the 1830s. It sold for $37,000. Our cat would love to chew it up.



I also liked this quilt with an eagle ($37,000).


The Urban Caballero liked this quilt with Masonic symbols on it ($20,000).



He also liked this adorable Cobalt Blue Decorated Salt-Glazed Stoneware Crock, which could have been ours for a mere $3,438 plus 25% auction fee plus tax.



See, we're just simple folk.
