19th. century Sugar Box with Cutter

Sugar Box. This one is a little bit different in that it has a sliding lid. I have had them with no lids and with lift lids and a drawer. This one has a slide lid and no drawer. The iron cutter is mounted on a plate for strong support in cutting those sugar cones. When I purchased this sugar box the lid was missing. I had a lid made. It needed to be brought back to the original condition. The box is beautifully made with dovetailed construction. The sugar box measures 11 x 8 x 4 1/4 inches. The handle adds another 5 1/4 inches. Circa 1850-1870

Sailor's Mourning Watercolor

I love early memorial tokens, whether it be art, hair, jewelry. They are such touching momentos of lost love, past history, legacies of tenderness and love. This one depicts symbols of a sailors life, a nautical remembrance of a parting of ways, and lost love. It is delicate watercolor that has been remounted. The watercolor is dated 1843 right under the picture. This watercolor is housed in a new frame but it is very tasteful. The watercolor itself measures 3 5/8 x 3 3/4 inches. The overall size is 9 1/2 x 10 inches. This is a special piece, guaranteed to please. This piece is in excellent condition, anything you might see in the photos is glare from the glass.This lovely dough bowl is nice size for just about any placement. The bowl measures 12 1/2″ one way and 13 1/4″ another way (nice warp) and stands 3 1/2″ tall. It has a nice cut rim. The paint is a cream to white color. Most likely it was originally a lighter color and I believe the cream color shows the age of the paint. It has

Sometimes you find singles but you don't often find pairs of pillow cases. This charming pair of pillowcases hails from Lancaster County, Pa.

Simple patches with a ruffled edge give them a great country look. The pillow cases measures 28 1/2 x 17 1/2 inches. Some of the photos picked up a pink hue, that is the light not the cases.
