18th century small wooden box

Special late 1700s box with an etched design on the top. It has a small crack on the top. It is wonderfully hand made with a lock on it but no key. It has metal hinges in the back with old handmade nails holding them on. The metal hinges appear to be old replacements for what once were leather straps. The whole piece is square nailed. Wood is very light probably pine. There is a small piece missing in the back but does not bother the box's integrity. Measures 4 1/2" tall 6" in length and 4 1/4" in depth.

Wooden spice apothecary

I can't say enough about this simple yet gorgeous late 1800s dark wooden apothecary spice cabinet with carved peg knobs. It has eight labeled drawers in their original and worn stencil, some of which are hard to read. Excellent patina, and normal wear and tear. This honest box has seen many of its years in a kitchen around a hot stove and grease. The box has been gently cleaned from excess grease. The stenciled drawers read: Soda, Pepper, Allspice, Cinnamon, Mace, Ginger, Baking Powder and Cloves. (Dimensions: 18" Tall x 11" Wide x 5" Deep.) I have this wonderful spice apothecary in my personal collection.

NEW PRICE! Amish Trencher

I love this early 1800s’ Amish Trencher with its dark, scrubbed finish. This well-used trencher has a deep well that has been worn through in one tiny hole; otherwise it is in great condition. It is thick and sturdy, but even better, it boasts an early, early repair done by an expert woodworker. This bowl is part of our collection and a definite favorite! (Dimensions: 19” L x 12-3/4” W x 5” h)

NEW PRICE! Early black couple, perhaps tar?

I honestly do not know what these little dolls are made of, at least their heads. Whatever oily substance was used to harden their heads, it dripped into the clothing on their shoulders. The dolls possibly have real hair stitched into their heads. The female doll has a bonnet and two aprons; the male has a knit cap. The gloved hands of the female have tears, but each of their feet hold tiny leather shoes. Their clothing is period and is both hand and machine-stitched. The dolls are most likely late 1800s, early 1900s. They are fun to look at and talk about and would make a great addition to any early doll collection. Even better ... they are quite affordable.

NEW PRICE! 6.5" natural wood pantry box

This is an antique wood pantry box stamped Murdock & Co., Winchendon, Mass. It measures 6.5 inches across. It has old nails and a banded top. It has the original finish that has darkened with age. There are a couple of nails missing in the lid causing the top to be a little loose when removed what it is fine when it is closed. It is a great primitive example of an old, well-used pantry box. It would look great by itself, or as part of a stack.

Beautiful beehive bowl from the 19th century. The bowl has its original red wash surface. Appears it might have had a wax applied at some point in its life.

Vintage lipstick red painted bowl

This vintage 20th century bowl measures 8-3/4 inches; it is slightly out of round. The engraving on the bottom reads "Parrish Second Quality Chicago," which indicates the bowl's age being early 20th century. It also appears to have two coats of red paint. There is one tiny hole that doesn't go all the way through on the outside of the bowl. The age and paint history make this bowl very affordable if just starting your collection of primitive painted bowls!

Early antique milk stool

Early antique milk stool, constructed by through mortise and tenon joinery. This old stool is possibly 1700s, judging by it's wear and simplicity. It is super sturdy and cute, and I would bet it could tell many stories if it could talk! The patina and worn carvings make this stool especially desirable. Found in Ohio. Measures: 8" tall by 10.5 wide by 6.5 deep.

Antique miniature coffee grinder

This sweet antique miniature coffee grinder measures just 2.5" x 2.5" x 4." It's a wonderful display piece in any country collection. It even sports a tiny front drawer that works. In fact, the grinder works, so I suppose you could use it for grinding pepper, if you want. I assume this little piece was once an advertising sample in the late 1800s. This miniature piece was found in Ohio.

Early black and red painted document box

This 19th century document box boasts the bold black swirled paint over red that so often was found in Maine in the early to mid-1800's. This storied box was found in Vermont. It is 14" by 7.5" by 5-3/4." The box retains its original wire hinges and square nails and is simply constructed. The top part of the locking mechanism for the box is long gone, but this box still has its original front locking hardware where the key used to fit. The paint is dry and shows much wear that is appropriate and expected for a piece this age; however, the bold paint swirls overshadow the imperfections. This could make a handsome dresser box or addition to any shelf in the house. And what a great piece to sit on a table by the front door to hide mail and other scattered papers!

Early carved and signed pantry box

This early carved and signed oval pantry box says "LS" on both the top lid and the bottom of the box. The box measures 9-3/4" by 5" by 3-1/2" and is stitched and sturdily built by thick walls, braided laces and square nails and pegs. I found this box in Ohio and believe it originated in the United States; however, I saw something with similar carvings recently that was attributed to English origins. Whatever it is, it's beautiful and very early, perhaps late 1700's. (If anyone familiar with this type of box, wood and/or carvings would like to discuss with me, please do!)

Early black and red painted tote box

This antique red and black wooden tote box, ca. 1820-1850, is decorated in the swirled paint style often found in early Maine pieces. Found in Vermont, the carrier measures 8-1/4 inches by 12 inches by 5.5 inches. It is hand-carved and constructed, and it retains its original tiny square nails. The wear and patina on this piece are fantastic. Nothing has been done to alter the tote box and could still be used in homes today for many purposes. In my home, we use a similar piece to store television remote controls!

19th century painted wooden box

This petite 19th century painted wooden box is a survivor! It shows normal wear expected for its age, with some sturdy cracks and slightly warped lid, but it retains its original surface paint and hardware. This little box is skillfully dovetailed and nailed by square nails. The lid, though it doesn't close completely, connects by a working wire latch. The back of the box appears to have very old fill-in repairs where wood either rotted or shrunk at the dovetails. This 8" by 5 " by 4-3/4" box most likely would have quite a story to tell if it could talk!

Early wall box with carved bow

This early wall box or pipe box is skillfully hand-carved with a bow to decorate its backboard. It also has a sweet little bottom drawer with its original iron ring. This 13-3/4 inches tall by 5-1/4 inches by 4-1/4 inches box is sound and sturdy with dovetailed construction and square nails. The dark stain of the wood (possibly walnut) shows a few water drop stains, but other than that, the condition is beautiful. This box is of early 1800s New England origin. Someone long ago fixed the box to attach to the wall, as shown in pictures.

Early seated Indiana black woman doll

This is one of the most fabulous pieces of folk art I've ever seen. The amount of work that must have gone into this piece of art to achieve capturing all of that detail is astounding. The only thing missing from this is there most likely was another piece sitting glued to the table. Her face shows a pretty and pleasant expression. The doll's clothes looked to have been machine-stitched. The table and the duck under it were hand-carved. This little doll from Indiana captures life during the early 1900s. Exceptional work. Dimensions: Base of board to height of doll: 7" by 4-1/4" by 6-3/4" tall

NEW PRICE! Grain-painted sliding lid box, 1800s

This grain-painted sliding lid box is most likely mid to late 1800s. It measures 7-1/4 inches by 4 inches by 4-3/4 inches and was once just green wood that someone decided to make look much prettier by grain-painting it in a mustard color. It is simply constructed of thin pieces of pine. Found in Ohio, the short and stubby box has seen lots of wear but remains sturdy and worth using and admiring.

NEW PRICE! Antique Scandinavian Bride's Box

This gorgeous antique Scandinavian Bride's Box is bright and bold in it's salmon-red background painted with blue, yellow and white borders that encase the green leaves and white flowers surrounding the box's sides. The top lid has a print glued into it that depicts travelers on camels leaving what appears to be a home and a family. In German-speaking families, it was tradition for the bride-to-be to receive from the groom brightly decorated boxes such as this one; the boxes held small items and mementos. This early 1800's box is well-worn yet retains its lovely paint decorations. It was clearly well-kept over the years. It measures 15-1/4" by 9-1/4" by 6" tall. The flaw worth mentioning is that someone at one time attached a hook to the bottom of the box, presumably to allow the box to prop up and be seen on top.

NEW PRICE! Toaster Cover Black Doll (on a block)

Happy black rag doll made on a block bottom to sit on a toaster in the kitchen. While this doll is well worn, especially on the skirt, she is well-made and very pretty!

Her dress is pink and white solid and checked with a nice black bow at her chest. Her apron is pink and white, with pink and white checked pockets and lined with black rick-rack.

Gorgeous mustard, brown and black game board

Antique game boards are awesome, and this just might be my favorite one yet. I love the way the mustard and brown (almost maroon) colors work together to stand out as if a bright red might. The alligatoring is my favorite feature, truly gorgeous. This late 19th to early 20th century game board measures 16-1/4 inches by 16-1/4 inches, with the one-quarter part being the frame, nailed by square nails.

Both wear green, yellow and brown textiles of the period. They have sweet handstitched faces, and machine stitched clothing. Normal wear and discoloration to be expected for a well-loved set of dolls. Additional photos available.

NEW PRICE! Painted tin measuring cup, 19th century

The painted design on this measuring cup depicts fruit and flowers, although hard to tell, confined within a circle. I understand this design was called "fried egg" because of the loose colors contained within a circle. Most likely Pennsylvania. While well-worn, the red and gold colors still shine on the black painted background. Most painted tin such as this occurred in the early to mid 1800s. Some of the wear on this piece indicates someone might have — but not certain — artificially aged the piece, and therefore, the paint. Your expertise is welcome! 4.5" tall. Additional photos available.
