Lynne Nelson Antiques
I have been buying and selling 18th and 19th century country antiques for approximately 35 years concentrating in early paint, iron, lighting, and items to be found in the early kitchen. For the past several years I have shown in the Nan Gurley antique shows.
This wooden candle dipping rack circa 1750-1800 has a grid-type frame that allowed more candles per dipping. The rack was suspended between two chairs as shown in George Neumans book Early American Antique Country Furnishings. 1650-1800's. It measures 23 inches long by 11 inches wide There are 6 sections and each is tenoned into the side pieces which are tapered.
circa 1680-1750 this wrought iron rush holder with a candle socket is 11 1/2" tall. The plierslike pincers were used to secure a burning rush.
This nice wooden divided carrier is in its original blue green dry paint. It is used and has normal wear for its age which is approx. late 19th century. The box measures 16 inches across the front, 8" high at its highest point and 8" from front to back.
Price: 195.00 plus shipping
This great painted wall box is in its original old red paint. It is 8 1/2" in height, 3 1/2 " deep, and 11" across the front. There are square nails on the back.
The punched tin lantern shown is 17 inches tall including the ring at the top. It is cleated on the bottom indicating an original early piece. It has an overall punched design. This lantern is in good used condition. Please request more photos if interested. Thank you.
This Betty lamp rack or utensil rack is meant to hold several Betty lamps. The two spikes are meant to be put into a fireplace beam. It is 15 inches long. The top rod is decorated with three curlique figures. This rack could also be used as a utensil rack to hold iron forks, ladles, etc.
This nice mortar resembles an old horn beam mortar. I am not certain that it is made of horn beam but it has a nice natural color with lots of character. It is most likely 18th C. There is a very small age crack (tight crack) about 1 inch in length on the upper edge. The mortar is not original to this piece but it looks great with it. The mortar measures 6 1/4" high with a 6" top diameter. If you would like more photos please email me.
Price: Sold, Thank you!
Two large old iron skeleton keys on a large iron key ring. The larger key is 4 3/4" and the smaller is 3 1/2" long. The key ring has a 4 1/2" diameter.
This early spiral candlestick is mounted on a round platform with three cabriole-type legs. The original sliding knob is missing. It is in good used condition and measures 6 inches tall.
The two punched tin lanterns shown here are being sold is as found condition. The taller lantern has a damaged top and no hanging ring however it has a beautiful sunflower design. It is 13 inches tall. The punched tin lantern without a door has a nice sunburst design. It does have its hanging ring. It is 15 inches which includes the hanging ring. Both of these lanterns are the earlier type with the cleated bottom.
THIS EARLY WOODEN DOUGH SCRAPER SHOWS LOTS OF WEAR BUT IS IN GOOD CONDITION. THE SCRAPER WAS USED TO SCRAPE THE DOUGH FROM THE SIDES AND BOTTOM OF THE BOWL. IT MEASURES 9 INCHES LONG AND RESTS AT AN ANGLE WHICH I THINK YOU CAN SEE IN THE PHOTOS. THIS IS A NICE SCRAPER THAT WOULD LOOK GOOD SITTING IN YOUR PRIMITIVE WOODEN DOUGH BOWL.
