19th. century Trammel

Trammel. A great 19th. century hanging trammel. This trammel has a very unusual “hood like” top connector and a circle at the other end instead of the usual hook. The workmanship is very fine with the iron being worked to be very thin. When the trammel is closed it measures 24 1/2″ plus 2″ more for the hanger. Fully extended it measures about 39″.

19th. c. Field Desk

Civil War Field Desk. Love this Civil War field desk. It does need some refreshening and a good clean up. The surface is all original and has the original Spanish Brown painted surface. The latch that holds the desk closed should be replaced, a little wooden turn buckle would look great. Lid falls forward to reveal a lot of boxes and cubbies and a center drawer. There is a small hole on the top board, looks like a pine knot popped out. The desk has a very nice scrolled back. The desk measures 26 inches wide, 24 inches to the top of the scroll and about 12 inches deep.

19th. c. Signed Yellow Ware Pie Plate

Yellow ware Pie Plate 19th. century Yellow Ware Pie Plate. Quite an unusual find is this 19th. century yellow ware pie plate. The form itself is uncommon and this particular pie plate is also signed on the reverse. Excellent condition but for that small crease on the rim. I believe the crease was in the making because the entire surface of the crease is glazed. The pie plate measures 10 1/2 inches in diameter.

Lapped and Tucked Pantry Box.

Lapped and Tucked Pantry Box. early 19th. century smaller lapped and tucked pantry box in original red paint. It measures 14 1/2 in diameter and 7 inches tall. Great, original red painted surface. Circa mid 19th. century. The pantry does exhibit shrinkage that allows the bands to slip a bit. There is a rough bottom edge on the box where a sliver of the bottom band is gone. Hard to see and in no way disturbs the integrity of the box. Among pantry boxes the lapped boxes are seen less often, so if you are putting a stack together, this one may be for you.

Apple Tray, Blue

Apple Tray. I love this apple tray, apple box for several reasons. Most obvious is the wonderful blue paint but this box is a little different that others I have had. The sides are a bit canted but are deeper than the usual apple tray. The proportions give the box a completely different look that I love. A great apple tray. Bright blue paint that appears to be a second coat over a light blue, slightly canted sides with cutout on each side. This apple tray measures 21 x 13 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches. It is in excellent condition with minor wear that would be expected from this 19th. century apple tray. Price: $695.00 + shipping I love this apple tray, apple box for several reasons.

Scrub/Scouring Box

Scrub/Scouring Box. A truly wonderful scouring box in a most unusual form. In the 1800’s these boxes were used to scour kitchen knives and cutlery. The low sides contained the polishing pumice and the slanted wood wedge was the support for the blade polishing. These boxes were unique to the maker, each one being an expression of the individual’s creativity and need, so you find them in the most interesting forms. This one has a rectangular section to store the lye soap, (the soap and knives are not included in sale). This scouring box is dovetailed which is unusual for a scrub box. The scrub wedge has lots of wear as would be expected with continuous use. The sides are nicely shaped. 13″ tall. 13″ wide, 3 1/2″ deep at the deep end. The surface is true and worn from years and years of daily use. Found in New England and dating from the 19th century. A great country primitive.

Sheet Metal Whale Whirligig

Sheet Metal Whale Whirligig. I just love this whirligig of a whale. I have owned this piece for about 30 years. I believe it is easy to mid 20th. century. There is some light rust on the surface and the dark blue paint is quite worn. There is a hanging chain but I made that little stand to display. The base of the stand is wood and the waves are tin. The whale measure 30 inches long and 9 inches high.
