This matched pair of 19th C. walnut Indian clubs stand over 25" tall and weigh 5 pounds 5 ounces. The pins have turnings on top and bottom and are in the original finish. Having been used in the late 1800's as exercise weights, they have wear and distressing with one having an old age crack. But overall, they are in very good condition. This pair would probably be the largest of anyone's Indian club collection!
This fully-jointed golden mohair teddy bear from the 1920's has been lovingly restored. The pads on all 4 paws were professionally replaced with a nice suede-like cloth and it appears that his eyes, nose and mouth have been restored to their former glory. This adorable guy is 22" long and has beautiful golden mohair, with wear, mostly to the back of his legs. He has the original working growler and a nice hump back. He would most certainly stand out as a leader among any bear gathering.
This 19th C. copper swelled bodied running horse weathervane with rare cast iron head has lots of character. As you can see, the horses head has an old rusted surface with remnants of black paint. The body has a crusty old painted olive drab over gold surface while the tail has a natural verdigris oxidation. The horse obviously lived in a hostile environment for decades to obtain this condition, which includes dents, bullet holes and plenty of wear to the mounting post. 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.
Bill Brown Parkertown, NJ Brandt decoy in old paint. The hollow bodied decoy has glass eyes and the original lead weight nailed to the bottom. Measures 17" in length.
This mid- 1800's stoneware crock has a great size and wonderful cobalt blue decoration. About a one gallon size, the crock measures just over 10" tall and has two lug ear handles that are accented in blue. Possibly a Beaver County piece from Western Pennsylvania, the crock has a hairline at the base and a few shallow chips.
This bucket bench dating from the first half of the 1800's is for primitive lovers only. Constructed with wide pine boards and square nails, the bench has tons of character with lots of distressing, some make-do repairs, minor losses, and great old gray over the original red paint. One section of the top has a rudimentary patch done eons ago to keep the bench serviceable. It goes around the mortised leg and is supported underneath with and added piece of wood. If this bench could only talk! Recently found in Gettysburg, PA.
