This 19th Century tall piggin or churn retains its original vibrant blue paint. Measuring 41" tall and 9" at the base, the coopered wooden bucket-like vessel tapers to 7 1/4" at the top. The construction is unusual in that the staves are faceted and are joined with mortised inner staves (see photo of top). There are 4 secure iron bands that have a few extra nails that have been added over the years. As you can see, the paint is wonderful and has nice honest wear and patina, not to mention the unbelievable color that must be seen in person. Except for a small loss on the bottom, the piggin is in overall very good condition. A must for the primitive blue paint collector!

Selling "as found", this desirable honey amber colored New England chestnut bottle probably dates from the 18th Century. The free-blown bottle has a smooth pontil base and applied lip. Measuring just under 8.5" in height, the bottle is not without issues. There are three areas of small spider lines that are most likely the result of impurities in the glass. There is also a round bubble that has a whitish appearance. And the applied lip appears to be complete and as made, but close inspection reveals two tiny stress cracks. The base shows good wear from centuries of use. So it is far from perfect but very presentable and being sold for a fraction of the price of a similar bottle in great condition.

The body has a crusty old painted olive drab over gold surface while the tail has a natural verdigris oxidation.

The horses leg adjacent to this post has a repair. The vane measures just under 30" long and almost 20" tall when mounted in the iron stand (included). This is an honest old weathervane that displays beautifully! Priced accordingly.
