Kathy Schoemer Antiques
Kathy Schoemer Antiques was born at Christastime in 1971 in New Canaan, CT. We currently find ourselves in a delightful cape, built in 1818, 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.

5.5" x 6" . There's always something "new" on the antiques' hunt, and these were found last week in a shop in Keene. The "very" before the "folky" is an understatement. I think they originated in the 1920's or so and the colors and design are unique to me. They have had some lead poured into holes in the bottom of the wood, so they are very stable. 2 photos.
12" long. Some things are saved for who-knows-what reason, and these darling child's fine-knitted, woolen stockings qualify. I bought them from the wonderful Mary Elliott, and she and I agree that, despite a few very nasty wear/moth holes, they will do beautifully at the old hearth or on a certain rag doll. c 1850. Loden green, red and rust wool yarns. 2 photos.
Price: $38. - SOLD
Top is 8.5" x 14". height: 8.5". Signed "2006, Norma Schneeman". An old footstool is ressurected from extinction by one of America's top folk artists. Simple, expressive black cat made of vintage textiles, with embroidered nose and collar, and vintage button eyes, makes a cheerful and comfortable addition to the keeping room -- or anywhere. Always lived with us and in beautiful condition. It is heavy, so there may be extra shipping. 2 photos.

5" high (mortar); 5 1/4" long (pestle). This is the most perfect pair of implements. I feel like attributing them to the Shakers with the beautiful turning and many scribe lines in maple,. but I have no proof. They have been in our kitchen for years. the only thing better than dry old paint is perfect "attic" surface -- never touched with paint or stain, with just the natural beauty shining through. c 1840. 2 photos.
I'm pretty sure these are from the 1920's or 1930's, as I remember one in my childhood home. Made of paper mâché, in excellent condition; even retains the paper insert for candy. 2 photos.
7.5" x 9.5". This charming painting has always reminded me of Celia Thaxter and her many paintings on the walls of her house on Appledore Island, one of the mysterious and enchanting Isles of Shoals, off Portsmouth, NH. She is known for her writing, her role as an influencer, hostess, supporter of the arts (Childe Hassam was a frequent guest), and her stupendous gardens. Her rooms were always graced with bountiful bouquets. This seems to have been painted on a real panel of wood. c 1860. 2 photos.
32" long. An assortment of birds and rabbits -- all with good age, all in great shape, form a happy garland for a window or ladderback chair. c 1860-1920. 2 photos.
5" tall x 6 3/4" long. Please note the small size. A form of folk art from the early 20th c this little horse projects alot of spirit, despite his size and form. 2 photos.
8" x 10". No bells or whistles, but from a local family, this is a clean and nice work piece; when used for "atmosphere", it makes a lovely accessory. One small black thread (visible) is loose, but no holes, no blurs, no stains, with a good chainstitch edge border , sawtooth upper border, and pale greens, navy blue, beige and black silk threads. 2 photos. Tiny book is sold.
This tiny little boot -- 2 3/4" tall x 2 3/4" heel to toe, with real leather front and back pages is an autograph album ! It is in extraordinary condition, with a blue frayed ribbon at the top holding all the pages together, and beautifully calligraphed signatures, dates (1875-1876) and mottoes. It has Boston area towns listed as well. I love this piece and have never seen another. 2 photos.
6" x 16.5" nose to ears. This is such a simple concept, one would think it would be common, but I have never seen one before. Incase we question it, there are the 2 screws holding the base for eyes ! Turn of the 19th-20th c; hardwood for durability. True ingenuity. 2 photos.
