Gloria N. Greenwald Antiques & Folk Art

Gloria N. Greenwald | 276 Brush Hill Road, Litchfield, Ct., 06759 | 860.605 3958 |

We have been dealing in early 18th & 19th century country antiques and folk art since 1989. The major Americana antique shows of the Northeast were a focus for many years. Having retired from the show circuit in 2006, we now concentrate on selling privately and online. We deal primarily in country smalls including painted boxes and bowls, lighting, iron and tinware, and baskets. We look for makers who understood form and function, even when handcrafting rather primitive objects. Our preference is for pieces that please the eye AND perform a function.

An Antique End-of-The-Day Tinsmith Whimsey

This small antique heart shaped candle holder was most likely an end-of-the-day whimsey. The local tinsmith, would craft small whimsey pieces from the day's left over tin scraps. This little candle holder is masterfully crafted. It has crimped edges, folded over seams on the ring handle and top of the split candle cup. An exceptional example of fine craftsmanship. It's a wee piece 2"x 2", nice early patina.

19th c., Smoke Decorated, New England, Maple Bowl

Rare to find a smoke decorated bowl. Smoke decorating was seen often on furniture pieces. This bowl, with a chrome yellow base, was smoke decorated with a lighted candle using the smoke generated from that candle. That is why the decoration is irregular in appearance. A very nice bowl, and very special. It shows period wear, but in very good condition. Out of round by a full inch. 11 3/4" x 12 3/4" x 2 1/2". We offer a layaway plan.
