Best Red Painted Small Wooden Keg & 48-Star Flags

Found this very nicely painted small wooden keg, here in Maine, a while back. Stands approximately 10" tall with a diameter of about 6 1/2" across the top and bottom. It has a small whole on top of it's lid for pouring the contents out of the keg. Completely dry and clean, with the best color of dry, red painTape! All original to keg! There is some Minor rusting to bottom metal band, due to moisture, from years ago. Not bad at all and adds the antique character we desire.

The flags are about 32" long (wooden pole, each with gold painted tip). The cotton flags each measure about 11 1/2" by 16 1/2". No holes or stains and great bright colors! The keg is $95 + $12 ship.

Best Early Small China Head Doll in Original Dress

This is a very fresh find, a lovely small china head doll, wearing her original homespun cotton plaid dress!
