Best 19th C. Large Hand Hewn Trencher Excellent

This is a fresh and fantastic find, a wonderful large trencher bowl, completely hand-hewn (or hand-carved), with original darkened surface. Was only cleaned lightly with soap and water to remove a layer of old grime. This beautiful trencher has no chips, cracks, or repairs. Unbelievable, considering the age of this piece of primitive treen. Additionally, this trencher has a diameter of approximately 19" long, 11" wide and is about 5" deep. You can see the real use wear that this trencher has sustained, in the bottom interior (check out the numerous chop marks). Countless meals were prepared in this fantastic "Bergen County" wooden bowl! Best "flat lip" edge around the entire top of the trencher. As an actual hand-carved trencher bowl, found in Bergen County, New Jersey, it makes this 200 year old country primitive that much more interesting! $265 + $22 ship

Pair of Small Child Canary Mugs Good Boy & Girl

Rare pair of precious early 19th century child mugs in sought-after canary glaze with red transfer. Wonderful small size, one reads "A Present for a Good Girl" and the other matching mug reads "A Present for a Good Boy". The girl mug is perfect with only some very old age stains on exterior base. The Boy mug has a repair to it's handle which was a clean break and an additional, very light and short interior stable hairline on inside of mug at top. This mug is surely worthy of professional restoration if desired, as it would show perfectly afterward. I have had this pair for many years and did not mind the minor issues. Too hard to find any at all these days! Downsizing and getting a jump start on some spring cleaning. Look for more choice goodies on my site soon. This early pair of child canary mugs is $395 + $10 ship.
