Fresh find from a Maine seacoast estate, a fantastic early coffee pot.

Large Oval Fingered Ash Pantry Box Maine Shaker

Fresh attic find from Maine, this large oval shaped pantry box with copper nails and long fingers, is in very good condition! No breaks, chips, or missing nails, great oxidation around the original nails, I believe the wood is Ash (according to another knowledgeable) antique dealer. This oval pantry is about 8" in diameter and about 3 1/2" tall, with lid in place. The wood is quite heavy and this is a very solid pantry box. It might have been placed near a fireplace, as it has a faint smokey smell on the inside, that is quite pleasant and light. The box has its original surface that is dry and untouched. Again this is a very heavy and sturdy lidded pantrybox, early 19th century, possibly Shaker. $135 + $10 ship

19th C. Maple Pedestal Salt w Coin Silver Spoon

Fantastic fresh Maine find, a tiny treen salt with pedestal base and early coin silver salt spoon! The little wooden salt is carved from maple and has the nicest turned base. With only a diameter of about 2 3/4" wide and standing 1 1/2" tall, it is in excellent antique condition. Fabulous untouched surface, it almost has what I would call a "burled" interior, with honey darkened patina. The little coin silver spoon may not have started life with this salt, but selling together as they complete each other perfectly. I have pictured the salt & spoon with two pieces of old stone fruit, a peach and lemon, both showing surface wear but no chips (original wooden stems are in place). The treenware salt w spoon is $145, to include shipping. The two pieces of stone fruit are $40, to include shipping.

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! $220 + $18 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 $385 + $10 ship.

Price: $385 + $10 shipping
