We love this little beauty so much! Carved from wood and painted by hand, she is everything a good black cat should be. Plus, she works for her supper. She will hold your door open properly and quietly and she'll keep on smiling. Even if you forget to tickle her ears. The most mild of wear patterns. She's in great shape! There is a telltale thumbprint on the paint, from having been lifted by the top of her head countless times. But that's her worst fault. 8" tall X 4 1/4" wide at the widest point. Her back slat extends out 5". Early 20thC

A marvelous squirrel! He is everything you would want in a squirrel ~ bright-eyed & bushy tailed, yet quiet as a mouse. And he is superb at cracking nuts. Finely detailed throughout, with fur marks and terrific paws that hold a walnut. His hands are ready to catch a nut and the lever in his tail works smoothly and securely to crack that nut. Original glass eyes; traces of gilt mostly worn off, but enough to gleam when catching light at certain angles. What a squirrel! Stands 7 1/2" tall at his highest point, the handle of the lever in his tail. His base is 4 3/4" X 2 1/2". His condition is superb. And his personality - even better!
When your dolls are out in the woods camping, they can prepare hearty meals with this fine old set of cast iron cookware ~ a large mini fry pan 3" interior diameter, a medium fry pan 2 1/4" interior diameter and a tiny fry pan 1 1/4" diameter, a pot with a handle 1 1/4" diameter and a kettle with a wire handle and rounded bottom 1 5/8" diameter. The two larger fry pans have double pouring spots; the tiniest has a single, tiny pouring spout. The mid-sized fry pan is marked with an S-O and an L on the bottom. And this one has three ball feet, which we particularly love. All from a friend who died at the age of 100. The miniatures belonged to his wife, who predeceased him decades ago. They were still hanging over his cast iron stove in his home at his death. In good shape, with the only flaw a bit of roughness to one area of the outer edge of the pot.
It's huge, it's heavy and it's as rare as the teeth of hens. This is a mighty ice tea dispenser, once used on the counter of a cafe or diner in upstate NY. It is of good, thick, dependable restaurant / hotel type pottery with brown slip glaze. There is a metal spigot. The words ICE TEA are embossed on the front. On the bottom, words we can trust: MADE IN U.S.A. In very fine condition, with one small chip out of the inside rim of the lid, not visible from the exterior, and a couple of dings or pings, nothing that would interfere with the wonderful dispenser's history and desirability. 11" tall X 15" handle to end of spigot X 11 1/2" back to front. The dispenser weighs 9 1/2" empty and unpacked. It is really a marvelous piece of diner history. Want more pictures? Just email and we'll be happy to oblige.

Every one that has seen this original woodblock print hanging in our living room at Home Farm has fallen in love with it. In its original glazed frame, it is signed by the artist, Fannie Rebekah Mennen (1903-1995). Mrs. Mennen was a recognized printmaker and watercolor painter, a teacher, a professional artist and founder of the Plum Nellie Clothesline Art Shows in TN. The Girls Dormitory wood block, whose subject is the life of chickens in their chicken coop, is strong and clean cut. It has not been damaged by the years, other than a bit of "gathering" to an area at the very top edge of the paper along the line where it was glued, and an even, overall mellowing of the background color of the print and the color of the matte to a rich butter cream. In very fine condition, with just some dust collected beneath the glass. This is a joyous composition! 17 1/4" X 14 1/2" X 5/8" framed image.

I love them. Vintage Wyandotte trucks. Made by All Metal Products Co. in Wyandotte, MI ( Wyandotte Toy Company), in business from 1920-56. Our vintage side-dump truck dates to c1940s. This Pickway Projects Metal Side Dump Truck is all original including tires. In good working condition, with wheels rolling smoothly, lever working and box going up and down as it should. The truck shows signs of normal use and lots of play time. The colors on the tin are strong and true w/ some shallow scratches & scuffs to the paint. The litho on one side is mostly gone, while the other side shows partial litho. The truck front lithography is in better condition. A terrific look, a terrific truck. What we love about it is the memories it brings, of little boys under the Christmas tree, playing with their new trucks that Santa brought. 17"L X 5"W X 5"T.

A charming vintage oil on board. The scene is a mill pond in a pine wood area. Done with a distinctly primitive, folk art flavor. Signed and dated lower right hand corner. The back has pencil writing which I can't read. Contains a signature; dated 1946. The painting has excellent presence and grace.
Sitting handsomely on an early linsey-woolsey mat is this deep rye dough bowl or basket. Used by Pennsylvania and New England women to allow dough to rise in bread-making. This basket is deep, standing 5 1/4" high. The diameter across the top is 12 1/2". It is in exemplary condition. We love it for its canted sides, its clean weave, its versatility and simple American good looks.*SOLD

A great vintage rack ~ great sporting bit and great advertising! This rack was used to hang up hip waders after a day of fishing. The motto says it all...Hang ‘Em Up - They’ll Last Longer. Made of metal, the holder was manufactured by Noel Van Tilburg Co, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Collapses for easy storage. When you're ready to dry out your hip boots, just slide the hanger out and hang it on the wall. Versatile, it is good for Cottage (in your vintage kitchen holding your vintage towels), good for Camp (those hip boots) and good for Castle (know where your strands of pearls & diamonds are at all times). 8"W X 8"D Originally $95.00, now $65.00.
My favorite quilt. It is polka dotted in Turkey red wool yarn, tons of French knots resulting in the constellation of stellar dots that you see. All done on a nice old piece of linen. The color of the linen has darkened with age to a mellow ecru. Very restful for dolly. Tiny, tiny, tiny hand stitches all around the border. Meticulous! Backs of knotted dots are visible on the back. The condition is as to be expected. The soft darkening of the fabric, several missing knotted dots, one round hole, 1/4" diameter, with the thin batting showing through. There are no other problems, as far as I can see. This is a dear, sweet little doll quilt. I love it. 16 1/4" X 12"
Victorians loved their creature comforts, and they loved their comforts made of creatures. So dedicated to the outdoors ~ biology, entomology, any nature sciences, they loved to incorporate the same into both their personal fashion and their home decor. Here we have an outstanding example. A horn footstool, all original, the seat cushion covered in the original fabric and the base made of antlers. Your feet may rest cozy and with Teddy Roosevelt sort of flair. Stands about 18" tall, stands securely, not wobbly, and with a certain stateliness, a legacy from the original carrier of those antlers. Originally $165.00, now $110.00
Made from horn, this early group offers you three fine examples of carved horn whiskey beakers. Each horn has its own distinct color and pattern. The tallest beaker is the darkest and most solid in color, with attractive striations down the sides and nice lighter markings up around the rim. The sides of the cup reflect the natural angle of the original horn. 4 1/2"T $68.00 The medium beaker is more two-tone with warm coloring and contrasted markings. This cup has more of a natural curve to it than does the largest beaker. There is an age crack from the rim that descends for under 1". 3 1/4"T $45.00 The baby beaker is the lightest, with darker markings encircling the lower third and a rich caramel colored disk as the bottom. This little cup has an attractive natural curve to it, slightly more pronounced than the medium beaker. $45.00
