Kathy Schoemer Antiques
Kathy Schoemer Antiques was born at Christmastime in 1971 in New Canaan, CT. We currently find ourselves in one of the smallest, dearest 18th century houses in the village of Walpole, NH, a magical spot just a minute from the meandering Connecticut River and southeastern Vermont. After an almost 50 year career, during which we exhibited in some of the finest shows in the northeast, we have opted for a simpler formula. Kathy served on the Board of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Association for several years (as President for three). Now you can find her at home, welcoming old friends and new ; and right here, on two DIG sites, sharing things she loves. See "American Cloth Dolls" on DIG as well. You can find lots more about Kathy Schoemer Antiques by visiting our website: www.kathyschoemerantiques.com We are happy to take payments with personal checks and via PayPal. We also offer arrangements for lay-a-way purchases.
4" x just under 3" - site size. Frame size is 6.5" x 5.5". A very sweet watercolour of a boy in a shaded blue suit (sailor?) ,holding a hat with a detailed brim and tassel. Worn American newsprint on the back, and a brass ring for hanging. c 1845. 2 photos.
11 3/4" x 9.5" framed. These color prints were very popular in the 19th c; this one is particularly nice. The little basket overflowing with fruit was a common subject, but I have never seen one quite like this. "Cherries in a tiny basket" is very pleasant. This image is in its original lemon gold leaf frame, mounted on a black background decorated with gold flourishes, and it retrains its original back paper, with the label of the Boston framer. A nice, complete package. 2 photos.
2 1/4" tall x 2.5" wide at brim. c 1920 ? This bank says: "Pass around the Hat" under the brim , along with "PAT Applied For"., and the coin slot. It is NOT a reproduction and came from a dealer's collection in Northern Vermont. All original; no apologies. Really nice form. 2 photos.
Watercolor, 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square, framed simply in paper-backed glass with original ring hanger. In early script: "Natural Curiosity. Isle of St Helena", the faraway place of Napoleon's exile. The trees form the "ghost" of Napoleon (the sea is visible through him!). c 1835? A tiny folk art treasure. 1 photo.
6.5" long, with many impressed marks (incl. "EUROPE Pewter"), these are from the early-mid 20th c, but have lovely patina, and many uses. Would make nice soap dishes, for instance. 2 photos.
Price: $28. pair
This is really a clever presentation for the Arnold Print Works' "Plaything By The Yard" small Tabby Kitten, totally original, signed "Arnold". Pat. date Oct. 4, 1892, beautifully framed in a contemporary frame, striped like a tabby ! It's so clean and fresh, but the fabric has just the right amount of fading. Normally, newish frames are not my thing, but this one is really perfect for the subject. Frame size: 12.5" x 15.5". 1 photo.
33" tall, with a wonderful carved woman's leg and high-heeled shoe, this gem got me out and about before and after my recent surgery. Who says antiques aren't useful? Now it's time to pass it along to a collector, or, possibly, another candidate for surgery. In great shape, all original with nice old, brass tip. c 1890, American. 2 photos.
Just a moment of fun to show that, after hip replacement, I am on the road again, inspired by my favorite NH sites !
