These red and white wool 19th. C. doll or small child's doll socks are just over 7". They do have a few old moth bite as well as a mend in one heal. They were bought from Sally Whittemore's estate auction.
This tiny light as a feather finely hand carved wooden spoon is perfect in every way. It probably was a presentation present to a small child but could have been a salt spoon or condiment spoon. It is just over 4" long and is in excellent condition with a fine old patina.
This original red painted tin chamber stick is just the best. It does have wear and old patina but the paint is dry and crusty and nice. It has the stub of an antique bees wax candle that come with it. There is nothing missing and no dents or breaks.
This is a late 1800's wooden round box with nice paper graphics for "Gin Pills for the Kidneys" . Inside the box is a round tin box with raised lettering stating "Gin Pills for the Kidneys" It was put out by the National Dug and Chemical Co. of Canada limited Toronto , Canada. The tin box is so tightly in there as I suspect the wooden box may have shrunk a little that I haven't tried to pry it out. The labels on top and around the sides are as is with scuffing and some tears and pieces missing. It is 2 1/4" in diameter and is almost 1 1/2" high.
A very nice pair of dolls stockings in a soft blue cotton with a brown checkerboard top. They are really nicely made with a real heal and toe. They are 6" long and the foot is 2" heal to toe with some age related discoloration. Circa 1870-80
This little Child's Sunday School book from the 1830's-40's is just 2 1/2" by 4". The front and back covers are a wonderful blue paper with black ink. The book is hand sewn and has some nice illustrations. All eight pages are there. It has some age related discoloration. It was printed in Philadelphia but has no printing date. Just a nice little treasure from almost 200 years ago.
A very sweet little antique pewter ink well with the original glass liner. It is not marked but clearly American. It has some dings on the bottom rim and the top rim is a little out of round. It is a great size for a small writing desk. 2 1/4" across the top and 1 1/2" high. Circa 1830
Light as a feather, very early original green paint wooden bowl. It has great patina interior that is clean and smooth. The exterior is worn green paint. It is out of round about 1/2" . Circa 1830-40
Very nice poplar Shaker bonnet with a label marking the size as a 5. They were also made in size #6 and size #7. The bonnets were sold by the Shakers in their gift shops but they were not made by the Shakers. This one is in very good condition. It does have a few brown stains at the top of the brim edge, see photo. This is just about as good as you can get for this type of Shaker bonnet. ( 9" front to back and 6" across the front.)
This is a nice brass school bell on the larger size. It is in good shape and it is 19th C. 7 1/2" tall
This brass toy horn is 8" long and 3" high and is in dented and tarnished and played with. It looks great with dolls and bears and toys. I don't know that I have seen one this nice before. Circa 1880
Hand sewn 19th C antique strawberry emery with a black velvet top. This has a very country look, it is a little discolored but has no holes or leaks. The black velvet top has nice wear and is sewn on with tiny stitches. This is bigger than the standard emery, 2 1/2" long and is circa 1860-70
Antique strawberry pin cushion straw stuffed with a loop to hang it up or attach it to an apron. It is pieced on one side showing how frugal homemakers were in using up every scrap of fabric. It is 4" across and 3" tall and 1" thick.
