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 on this DIG site, sharing things she loves.

13 3/4" x 9.5". All over New England, there are tiny museums sprinkled in small towns, and this charming sign comes to us from just such a place. The design and lettering is beautiful, and it has lovely patina. The back of the board shows remnants of an earlier use, honoring real Yankee thrift. Condition is just right. We love houses as decoration and this one may give a hint as to the barn housing the collection. c 1920. 1 photo.
6.5" tall x 5.5" diameter at top. I have not seen an earlier little bucket for a very long time. This one is in great shape, with wrought iron banding and a wonderful shaped iron bail handle. Finish is original and it is small enough to fit anywhere you wish. 18th c. and rare. 2 photos.
Large one: 11" long x 9" tall at head. The Amish and Mennonites have made animals of printed textiles for over 100 years. Can't trace these, except to say they seem to be from the first half of the 20th c, and are really endearing. The large one has raffia for a mane and tail; small one has wool. The embroidered faces are done by the same hand and they are smiling. Condition is great - ears are intact - and they make a happy pair. 2 photos.
Price: $ 68. pair
Found in a VT estate, this 18" x 31" rug is a perfect size for so many places, and has a simple graphic motif in subtle shades of milk chocolate brown and beiges, with black accents. c 1900. Some old images are very contemporary. In the old days, I had all my textiles stretched and framed at the Gallery of Graphic Arts on York Ave, in NYC, and this has all the earmarks of their perfected techniques for rug-mounting. Please note the sweet, tiny eyes ! 2 photos.
14". Sheet iron dancing toy with his original hook, in great condition and patina, c 1880, found here in NH. A wonderful, joyful wall piece, with lots of movable parts to play with. Looks like a poor relative of Bill Traylor's work.
4.5" x 5". Early potholders are rare and wonderful, and this one is in great condition - needlepoint in pumpkin and black threads. "Unless the kettle boiling be, filling the pot spoils the tea." c 1880. American. Excellent condition on front and back. 2 photos.
