18th. c. Folk Art Carved Dog. A very sweet, late 18th. century pull toy, a carved Walnut wood dog on wheels. One very interesting feature of this piece is that the dog and the base are one piece of wood. You would almost always find the dog attached to the base but this one is all one carved piece. Nice detail and great patina. Many years of handling have imparted on this towy a rich dark surface. Four small tin wheels and what I believe very old, if not original leather pull. This toy measures 5 1/2 x 5 x 1 3/4 inches. From a private Pa. collection.

The form is charming having the raised foot and beautiful score line decoration around the circumference of the bowl. Best original Pumpkin painted surface, buttery smooth from wear. No cracks but an unusual flaw to the base of the bowl. It looks like the wood was shaved from the one section of the foot. I don’t know if it was an original flaw to the piece of wood, a design element so the bowl would si

A late 19th century Steiff, pull toy donkey on its original cast iron wheels. The donkey measures 15″ tall, 19″ long and 7″ wide at the wheels. Felt covered over straw, he’s 100% original. This sweet donkey has been well loved and shows wear. First, the tail is missing. The seam has opened along the back. One ear also needs some repair. Finally, there are four corn kernel sized holes in the felt on the face, one above each eye and one at each nostril. Aside from stitching up the back seam and the ear, I’d leave this piece as is –it shows wear and tear that the years of love and play have imparted. This is a hard to find Steiff pull toy donkey. Steiff began making donkeys in 1892 but did not start inserting buttons in the ear until 1904. This sweet little guy is pre 1904.

19th.c. Work Sleeves. Late 19th C Indigo/White Sleeve Protector. A pair of vintage sleeve protectors made for a young person or woman. Authentic pair of “workwear” sleeves. The sleeves were made and worn by Lawrence Ward in 1904. If you look at vintage photos of shop keepers or trades people from the 19th. and early 20th. century, you will notice they wore half sleeves as protection over their shirt or blouse sleeves to save them from getting dirty and torn. Some women wore them around the house on cleaning day. This sweet pair are made of a very dark blue and white fabric. and measure 7 inches long. Hand and tredle stitched, still retaining the original drawstring pulls. They are in excellent condition. This example of “workwear” is such a fine example and sleeves are quite difficult to find, most were tossed away because they were so worn or soiled.
