The wooden man on a swing that used to hang on the crossbar but that broke at some point. (Maybe a project for someone next winter.) It is for real and I just don't see how it was done. A true folk art piece. 5 1/2" tall C. 1890
Nice deep cut butter stamp with nice old patina. The design is a flower with leaves and a chipped border around the edge. It has a big old crack that is stable and has old patina in the crack so it has done what it is going to do.
Miniature on ivory is in excellent condition and signed ? Hall, see picture. And two silhouettes, man, hollow cut in the original frame without glass and a bite out of the paper top right. Woman silhouette under glass with old worn velvet around the edge. The miniature on ivory has never been out of the frame. She is European and dates to 1830-40. Shadow not a stain on the lady on the bottom left. Miniature on ivory 4 1/2" by 5 1/2" Woman silhouette 2 1/4" by 3" Oval man 4" by 5"
One look and you know this doll has been through a lot. I can't tell you what but someone has cared enough more than once to mend or replace something. I think both front and back were faces at one time but more shows on the side without the hole. She is 19" tall and is as found. She would be perfect in a primitive chair. Circa 1890-1900
A nice silhouette of a gentleman in what might be the original frame, if not it has been in this one a long time. It is hollow-cut and the paper is wrinkled a bit maybe due to the fact it is backed by very early sandpaper. Who knows why maybe it is all they had at the moment. The frame has an early cleated metal wire hanging, nice. Circa 1840

This is a two-sided wallhanging eye teaser. On one side the blocks are green, gray and tan. On the other side, they are brown, reddish brown and a light red. This is meant to be hung and used as a pincushion. There is a small amount of cotton stuffing, just enough to hold needles and pins. It is 5 1/2" BY 5 1/2". Circa late 1800s 3 Pictures
This is an 1890 photograph (carte de visite) of a boy on a rocking horse and his sister standing in front of it. We know why she looks sad! He is older and bigger and got his way. (Laughing) This was taken in Germany around 1890. Please see all three pictures.
Little lot of tiny antique sewing items that include two wooden spools of silk thread, a card of tiny buttons, two hooks, a wooden needle and a bone bobbin. The buttons are just a 14" across.

This is a 1" by 3/4" tintype of a woman in a brass frame. I see the tiny tintypes but I have not seen many with the brass frame. Circa 1860. Please see all three pictures.
This very nice eight-sided silk pin cushion was meant to hold pins all around the edges of it. It is all hand sewn with blue plaid silk on the front, tan silk on the back and green silk around the edges. It is 2 1/2" in diameter and 1/4" thick. Circa 1880
Small beaded pincushion made by the Woodland Native Americans. Some of the beading is done with the tiniest seed beads. The pincushion is a work of art in construction and balance of color. It has a beaded chain to hang it from a waistband or a sewing pocket. There is a little fraying of the green silk but all the beading is intact. It is 2" in diameter. Circa 1890. Please see both back and front pictures.
A wonderful all hand sewn with the tiniest stitches, needle and pin keep book. The cover is brown and tan silk and the back is more brown and red silk. It has a lovely floral interior with wool pages to hold the pins. The needle book is in nice but used condition and has some moth damage to the little wool pieces. It is 2 3/4" by 2 1/2". Circa 1870-80. Please see all three pictures.

This 5 1/2" rolled linen doll from the 1870s has on a brown calico top and a black skirt. She has round pencil drawn eyes with a straight vertical line for her nose and a faint worn line for her mouth. Tied around her waist is a two-tone black ribbon. She has a firm head and body with no legs. There is no evidence that she ever had legs. She is very rolled linen doll circa 1870. There is a hole in the back of her skirt. Please see all 3 pictures.
This wonderful tiny wooden round box with ink polka dots on the interior has all the appearances of being Shaker made but I have never seen another so I can't be sure of it. It is in perfect condition still the cover screws on perfectly. When the top is screwed on you almost can't see the joining of the top and the bottom, it looks like all one piece. It has nice old patina, is just 1" across the top and is just a little more than 1/2" tall. It was certainly a prized possession. There are 3 pictures.

It is 3/4" tall and is circa 1820-30 There are 3 pictures
