Thanks for the reply. She was interested in getting one of the pieces to a Museum or University with a textile collection. It is an early piece of Point de Marseille and somewhat valuable, based on the appraisal.
The other piece was probably part of a hand pieced purse (looks like a simple, triangle based quilt top), entirely silk, but little is known on age or value.
I'll see about contacting an antique broker for the Point de Marseille piece. I'm waiting for a reply from a quilting museum on the other.
PS, I do have pictures. If you're interested in seeing the pieces, I'd be happy to share.
