Union Shields from New York and Elsewhere


From a sampler album
Polak Collection in Amsterdam

If you are looking for more blocks for your Ladies' Aid Album
consider a Union shield from a New York sampler.

Julie Silber & Jane Lurie's inventory. 
They think New York.

Dated 1867
Many of these Union symbols are in post-war quilts.

Sampler from Brooklyn & Newark
Garth's Auction

From the New Jersey project and the Quilt Index

Martha Meeker's has seen better days but I like the way she used
the stars to link the blocks.

Online auction: "A.M.C?"


And a monumental example, 83" x 74", from Knoxville's Case Antiques auction.
