19th. century Painted Mortar and Pestle

A mid 19th. century painted mortar and pestle. The mortar was originally Bittersweet, the second coat is a Teal Blue but on applying the second coat the original Bittersweet was left exposed while the remaining surface was painted the Teal Blue. The two colors provide for an outstanding contrast. You can see the original Bittersweet that shows thru a worn area of the mortar. This mortar has a nice bulbous form and shaped base. There is an age shrinkage crack half way down one side. The crack is tight and stable. The mortar measures 7 3/4 x 5 inches. I do not believe the pestle is original to the mortar but the size and shape are right, the pestle measures 10 inches. Circa 1840-1850’s. Found in New Hampshire.

19th. century Corn Broom

A wonderful early 19th. century corn broom. In the early 19th. century brooms were made from broom corn, a once common crop that’s hard to find now. broom corn (sorghum vulgare) is sometimes called millet or guinea corn. The crop is grown much like oats or barley. The small, white seeds produce large heads of grain that are collected to make brooms. While this art has mostly fallen by the wayside, this is a real authentic example of a corn broom. Found in Ma. and has been in a private collection for years. The broom is in excellent condition and measures 51 inches.

A most unusual Brass adjustable Toaster. I believe this piece to be English. It is an adjustable toaster. There are two adjustable working knobs that adjust to whatever your desired position is.

The Toaster measures 16 1/2 inches at its farthest extension and the base is 3 inches in diameter.
